Zonta Club of Canberra

Women are 300 times more like to die from pregnancy complications or childbirth in poorer nations, and newborns are 14 times more likely to die. In many cases, disposable birthing kits are all it takes to reduce the risk. It was my privilege three weeks ago to join Liberal leader Alistair Coe and others in helping to prepare some of these kits.

In the Assembly today, I publicly thanked Canberra’s two Zonta Clubs, which annually organise this important event and then invite community members to assist in assembling birthing kits to be distributed globally in areas of need, along with training on how to use them. These simple efforts can literally make the difference between life and death.
