EVERY LIFE COUNTS 2022 - Emergency Care for New Mothers, Babies and Children in Nigeria
You can bring critically needed emergency care to mothers and children in Nigeria.
Your gift to the “Every Life Counts” emergency assistance program saves lives. We work together to reduce mortality among the most vulnerable: pregnant women, newborn babies and children.
Since AMURT started in Ebonyi State in 2010, supporters like you have been making healthcare accessible in the most remote and neglected rural villages in one of Nigeria’s poorest regions. Many lives have been saved. Your gift is applied directly and exclusively for emergency assistance to ensure that no lives are lost for lack of financial means.
Every dollar you donate will be doubled by our generous match funder, saving even more lives. That means your gift will have double impact.
Last year’s campaign raised $ 80,000. Can you help us reach us reach $80,000 this year too? Your gift will provide desperately needed emergency care to children new mothers, babies and children from impoverished families.

WHAT IMPACT DID YOUR GIFTS HAVE LAST YEAR ?
MAKING PRIMARY HEALTH CARE WORK
AMURT is making health care accessible and affordable in a country where 19% of all global maternal deaths occur and 1 in 10 children won't reach their 5th birthday.
Since 2010, AMURT Nigeria has set up rural health centres in some of the poorest, most remote communities of Ebonyi State. To date over 25,000 babies have been born in our health centers. Meeting a critical need, AMURT has made emergency obstetric care available in four of the ten AMURT assisted health centers, and has completed over 1,100 cesarean sections.
The new decentralised model of primary healthcare pioneered by AMURT Nigeria gives the local community opportunity to initiate, manage and take ownership of the health centers in partnership with AMURT and the government. Moreover, most staff in each health center come from the local community. In this partnership model, community participation and capacity building have been at the heart of the strategy. Through close monitoring, tight financial management ,and a cooperative approach, the AMURT assisted health centers have achieved a high level of self-reliance. By strengthening primary healthcare at the facility level, we reduce dependency and achieve real development and the promise of long-term sustainability.
