Concept Amenities steps up to aid the Birthing Kit Foundation
Every 90 seconds, a woman dies of complications related to pregnancy or childbirth; an estimated 385,000 women die annually.
“We are relentless about making this a better world,”
Melbourne, Australia January 20th, 2012 – Concept Amenities, a global leader in the supply of environmentally responsible guestroom toiletries, recently made a significant show of support by contributing to the Birthing Kit Foundation (Australia).
The not-for-profit non-government organization is dedicated to improving conditions for women who give birth at home, in developing countries, by providing birthing kits and education in clean birthing practices.
Every 90 seconds, a woman dies of complications related to pregnancy or childbirth. An estimated 385,000 women die annually in childbirth, often from preventable infections acquired during childbirth -- thus, the need for clean birthing kits.
The Foundation’s birthing kits contain six basic items including a plastic sheet, two gloves, a sterile scalpel blade, three cords, five gauze squares, and – most importantly – soap. Thus far, Concept Amenities has donated some 16,000 bars of soap for the birthing kits.
According to Michael Matulick, chief executive officer of Concept Amenities, the company’s contributions on behalf of The Birthing Kit Foundation are consistent with its core values. “We are relentless about making this a better world,” says Matulick. “We actively champion causes that help the environment, and our fellow man, because we prefer positive action to simply espousing feel-good theories. If we can help save lives in the process, then we can truly make a difference.”
