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.

SMT aims to reduce this extraordinary number of deaths by increasing the healthcare facilities.
