Our Principles

  • We will focus on serving community-based, non-profit “grassroots” health organizations
  • We will work with our grantee partners to Monitor, Evaluate and Enhance our programs
  • We will use 100 % of all contributions to fund our programs
  • We will listen to & learn from our grantee partners
  • We will work with "like-minded" collaborating foundations to help their grantees, learn from them and serve more of those in need
  • We will remember that our work is to serve our grantees and the communities they serve
Our Maternal Newborn Health (MNH) Clinic - Hospital Upgrade Program connects qualified NGOs, operating rural hospitals and clinics in sub-Saharan Africa, with Project C.U.R.E & Build Health International, leading suppliers of quality donated medical equipment to the developing world. We work with collaborating foundations, like the Segal Family Foundation (SFF), to provide funding for the Upgrade Program. Our grants fund MNH supporting equipment like portable ultrasound machines, exam-delivery tables, OB-GYN delivery tools, neonatal resuscitation kits, sterilizers, incubators or radiant warmers. We also provide laboratory equipment and complete dental suites to our partners. We will begin delivering NICUs and Operating Rooms to our partner hospitals in 2017.

“Each year, 2.9 million newborns needlessly die within their first month and an additional 2.6 million are stillborn.  The main causes, which are preventable and treatable, are complications due to prematurity, complications during delivery, and infection.”
