Help raise awareness about maternal mortality.

Build a memorial ◊ Honor her legacy ◊ Inspire communities to act

Modern Day Tragedy

Nearly 90% of all maternal deaths are preventable, making maternal mortality one of the most devastating—yet avoidable—tragedies of our day1.

Global Awareness

Over the last 25 years, the international community has made a massive effort to decrease maternal mortality, reducing deaths by nearly 50% globally2.

On the Rise

However, the gains are not even, and countries without a national action plan to address maternal mortality have stagnated in preventing it. In fact, maternal mortality in several countries—including the United States—is on the rise3.

Honoring mothers and those who protect them by

Monument Overview

In this short video, we are going to share with you some of the monument’s basic designs and purpose. We are also going to share Angela’s story—an example of a mother who realizes she is giving her own life in giving birth. If you were a mother faced with this impossible situation, what would go through your mind? When you first comprehend that life is slipping away, what is the final thing you would want to embrace? If you could look back on the life you are leaving behind, what would capture your imagination and give you peace? What would you expect of those you have left behind?

Do we remember these women?

WE APPRECIATE YOUR
GENEROUS DONATION
