A Pakistani mother holds her newborn baby. She is lucky to be alive. It is estimated that 30,000 women die every year in Pakistan from complications during pregnancy and delivery. Pakistan’s refugee crisis makes it harder for women to access the needed services during the critical time in pregnancy and delivery. With support, community leaders and local NGOs can respond to the needs of women in crisis by offering lifesaving services where otherwise there would be none.
