Maternal & Newborn Care

Donations to the Humanitarian Aid Fund support Maternal & Newborn Care and other humanitarian initiatives approved by Church leaders. More Information


900,000 babies die each year because they can’t breathe at birth. Humanitarian Services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who operates Latter-day Saint Charities, volunteers train in-country medical personnel who in turn train others to assist with resuscitation of newborns with breathing difficulties.

Last year, Humanitarian Services provided neonatal resuscitation training to 16,473 people in 9 countries. People in 94 countries and territories have been helped since 2003.

One hundred percent of every dollar donated is used to help those in need without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin.
