MAR is a Brussels-based non-profit founded by a group of people determined to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable and marginalized mothers in the developing world. Since 2009, volunteers from diverse backgrounds have been working to reduce the staggering number of women and girls who die each year in childbirth or from pregnancy-related complications. As maternal health advocates, we are fighting for the right to quality, respectful maternal health care for all women, and to end maternal and infant mortality and morbidity.
We are committed to woman-centred respectful care and to saving the lives of vulnerable mothers and babies who live in the developing world
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY MORE PEOPLE LIVE IN CITIES THAN RURAL AREAS
THE NUMBER OF URBAN POOR IS RAPIDLY GROWING AND THEY ARE VASTLY UNDERSERVED
IT IS A MYTH THAT POOR URBAN MOTHERS AND INFANTS ARE BETTER OFF LIVING IN CITIES AND TOWNS
We provide grants and technical know-how to NGOs implementing high-impact projects to help improve outcomes for at-risk mothers in the global south. We also partner with the private sector, social impact companies, research institutions and others to create opportunities for innovation in woman-centred maternity care. Our Partners
