Aid Africa (http://www.aidafrica.net), in partnership with Giving Children Hope (http://gchope.org), is looking for volunteers and support to assemble 5,000 Birthing Kits for shipment and use among Uganda’s rural poor. Just one day’s work can save 10,000 lives! Each year 500,000 African babies die from infection following birth. The risk of this infection can be greatly reduced by providing basic elements of medical sanitation during childbirth.
