Gifts made to Global Birthing Home Foundation are gifts to the entire mission. To help the most women access quality health care, MN does not use its limited resources to track gifts from donation to distribution. We use your gifts where they can do the most good by pooling them with the gifts of others to help transform entire communities. Your gift is tax deductible.
