Happy Mother's Day

A Mother's Love Knows no Boundaries

This Mother’s Day join us as we spread the joy of some incredible mums and babies impacted by you; the people of Ireland. Thank you!

The Good News

The Good News

More mothers and newborns are surviving every year!

Since 1990, 44% more women survive pregnancy and 55% more children survive to five.

You are part of the reason behind this good news. Thank you. 

The Challenge

The Challenge

In 2015, approximately 830 women and 7,000 newborns died every day from complications during pregnancy and child-birth. 

99% of these deaths occurred in developing countries. 

The Solution

The Solution

The solution is you! As an Irish taxpayer, you have impacted the lives of many mothers and babies across Africa through our Irish Aid-funded child and maternal health programme, AIM Health Plus. 

Your impact is only going to grow as the Irish government has pledged in this year's A Better World policy to expand overseas development assistance by €110 million! Health and gender equality are a priority and we are so thankful to be a part of Ireland's international legacy. 

"We believe that the focus in this new policy will help create that better world which we want for ourselves and our children..." - An Tánaiste, Simon Coveney, TD.

  • Encouraging and supporting immunisation
