TROPICAL CYCLONE PAM ASSISTANCE FOR VANUATU
DONATIONS URGENTLY REQUIRED
Send Hope Not Flowers is partnering with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to provide immediate emergency obstetric support in cyclone-ravaged Vanuatu.
With a clearer picture emerging of the devastating effects of Tropical Cyclone Pam, which hit Vanuatu on 15 March, an emergency relief operation is now underway.
RANZCOG and Send Hope support will provide practical assistance and meet gaps in the resumption of obstetric, gynaecological and reproductive health services as Vanuatu doctors, midwives and health workers strive to get things back on track.
Your assistance in enabling us to provide support in a practical way will be much appreciated by those facing the mammoth task ahead.
EVERY 90 SECONDS, SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD,
A WOMAN DIES FROM COMPLICATIONS IN CHILDBIRTH
When a baby is born in Australia, there is a better way to celebrate than sending flowers. For the cost of a bunch of flowers, you can help save the life of another mother in the developing world.

"Send Hope Not Flowers is such a great initiative. It will help all countries in the region reduce the rate of maternal mortality. For that I am most appreciative."
BECAUSE FLOWERS DIE, AND WOMEN GIVING BIRTH SHOULDN’T
Send Hope Not Flowers is a charity that allows you to make a donation to life-saving maternal health programs in developing countries. Our current focus is in the Asia Pacific region - in countries such as Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the Solomon Islands. Next time someone you know has a baby, Send Hope Not Flowers. New mothers will receive a beautiful card with a message from you. They’ll know that you’ve made a donation in their honour which will help save the life of another mother.
