This is an anti-shock garment and it saves lives. Hemorrhage is the number one cause of maternal death in poor countries.
This garment is simple to use. It forces remaining blood to vital organs, maintaining life until a woman can be given blood. In rural areas this is a godsend. It can also be very important in urban places like Kathmandu. Emergency ambulance services do not function as well and it is not as quick to get blood in a hospital. It costs $300. It is not in my budget, but now that I have surpassed my goal……. well, I would love to bring one with me.
Can you help?
