ONE Breath can lead to millions over a lifetime.

Every child, regardless of circumstances, deserves the right to that first breath. 

About
ONE Breath

Every life story begins with a breath, a chapter that unfolds with endless possibilities, and a joyous moment that should mark the start of hope and promise for every child.


One Breath is a global campaign to help end maternal and infant mortality in Sierra Leone.

Why
ONE Breath

Sierra Leone is one of the most dangerous places on earth to give birth.

1-17

1 in 17 women die during childbirth in Sierra Leone while in Australia it is 1 in 8,700.

Sierra Leone has less than 8 obstetricians for the same population as NSW (7.8 million).

1 in 10 children in Sierra Leone won’t see their 5th birthday.

For Mothers and Babies

Together, we can make a difference—one breath at a time.

Help us give more than 3,000 babies and their mothers the chance to take that crucial first breath each year.
