Having a baby should be a time of great joy and hope. But every year across the world approximately 302,950 women die in pregnancy and childbirth. That’s one mother dying every 2 minutes, 830 each day.

Fact: Government Health Expenditure – UK: 9.1% Pakistan: 1.7% Fact: Skilled Nurse Present at delivery – UK: 99% Pakistan: 20%

Another 7-10 million women and girls suffer severe or long lasting illnesses caused by complications in pregnancy and childbirth.

99% of all maternal deaths occur in developing countries.

These women do not need to suffer and die; most lives could be saved relatively easily.

Pakistan has the fifth highest number of maternal deaths in the world; it is also one of the most dangerous places for a child to be born. 9,000 mothers and approximate 150,000 babies die every year within the first month of birth.

We believe no woman or girl should die giving birth. We want to see a world where every mother, wherever she lives, is able to give birth safely and without fear. We want to stop mothers dying and suffering in pregnancy and childbirth, we want babies to live and be healthy and we want families to thrive.

SMT aims to reduce this extraordinary number of deaths by increasing the healthcare facilities. Therefore we appeal to you all to contribute by donating generously towards this good cause SMTs prime objectives are to provide sustained health care services. As part of this initiative SMT’s long-term plan are to build a fully functional hospitals along with subsequent maternity units in the Third World Countries.

SMT began the construction work on the building of a fully equipped hospital in 2005, which provides treatment for all the people of the province, especially the poor who are given free medical treatment.

The hospitals main focus is on the maternity infrastructure of the health services.

The Hospital is located in Haripur city in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province of Pakistan. There are no hospitals for miles in this region of Pakistan and currently there are no charities or organizations that are fully involved in the improvement and development of the lives of these people.
