Members of the Zonta Club of Port Macquarie Inc., District 24, recently partnered with college students to support an Australian birthing kit foundation.
Birthing Kit Foundation of Australia, BKFA, provides opportunities for Australian volunteers to fundraise and assemble Birthing Kits.
The Zonta club purchased the birthing kits and students from MacKillop College Year 9 did the pre-packing day preparations.
BKFA establishes partnerships with approved field organizations in developing countries to distribute the kits to vulnerable women to help enable a clean and safe birthing experience. With a birthing kit, mothers have the resources to reduce infection during childbirth.
