ANTENATAL RESULTS & CHOICES (ARC)
ARC is the only national charity helping parents and healthcare professionals through antenatal screening and its consequences.
Around 800,000 women in the UK become pregnant each year. More than 40,000 will be told there is a risk their baby has a serious fetal anomaly. Naturally, this causes a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty. Most parents will ultimately be reassured the pregnancy is progressing as expected. Sadly, some will receive the devastating news that their baby has a serious, sometimes lethal condition or might be told that the outlook is very uncertain.
ARC offers non-directive information and support to parents before, during and after antenatal screening; when they are told their baby has an anomaly; when they are making difficult decisions about continuing with or ending a pregnancy, and when they are coping with complex and painful issues after making a decision, including bereavement.
FREEDOM FROM FISTULA FOUNDATION
An estimated 2 million women and girls in Africa are suffering from obstetric fistula caused by prolonged, obstructed childbirth and lack of access to maternity care. Left incontinent, they are often condemned to a life of solitude and despair.
Freedom from Fistula Foundation is a charity which helps these women and girls by providing free surgeries to heal their fistulas. Additionally, women get free maternity care to prevent fistulas and ensure safe childbirth. The Foundation also trains and improves qualification for the local healthcare workers.
Thousands of girls and women get help from this charity on the annual basis. You can be sure that 100% of your donation will go directly to the projects as the administration costs of the FFF are met by The Gloag Foundation.
MAMA Academy is a registered charity working alongside The Royal College of Midwives with the aim of helping babies arrive safely. Being provided by the information and medical support from the RCM they see their mission in reducing the numbers of stillborn babies in the UK.
MAMA Academy is empowering parents with vital knowledge and education on health in pregnancy and when to call their maternity team for advice. The charity is also supporting healthcare professionals by keeping them up to date with the latest practices, guidelines and research in order to provide consistent maternity care.
This is a relatively new charity in need of funding to keep MAMA Academy running. Any donation you can give to them will be very gratefully received.
SMALLS FOR ALL
Smalls for All is a young charity set up in 2010 which helps women and children in Africa meet their most basic hygiene and security needs. Its founder, Maria, has been on a series of trips to Africa and the idea of creating this charity was driven by her experiences. She has discovered that too many African communities are poor and women often have own only one pair of tattered pants and some of them cannot afford the underwear. This is a problem of not only health and hygiene but also involves a self-esteem, status and a degree of woman security.
Today, Smalls for All and their supporters help to collect and distribute underwear, both new pants and new or gently worn bras, to women and children in Africa who need it most. They help those living in orphanages or IDP camps, as well as those suffering from medical conditions like fistula. And Smalls is helping to fund the education of seven children in Kenya, so they can look forward to a better future.
The charity is continuing to work with other local charitable organisations in Africa to ensure they provide help in a practical and sustainable way.
