How can we not?

"So the question is not how or why I would do this with my life. The question is, how could I not." Angelina Jolie journaled this thought in the notes from her travels. When you think about the randomness of life. The unpredictability of where we are born. And the odds that we will be among the twenty percent living above the international poverty line. The question is not how or why we would do this with our lives, the question is how could we not? This is why we do everything we can to support maternal and newborn health around the globe. 

When you buy a pair of Bella | Ha shoes you help us send solar suitcases to an area of the world in need. What’s a solar suitcase? It’s a portable, suitcase-like device that equips off-the-grid medical clinics with solar power so they can have light. In more places than you can imagine, women give birth to children in darkness. This contributes to high infant and maternal mortality rates in impoverished regions. By the simple act of providing solar power, these clinics will now have medical and surgical lighting, as well as power to charge cell phones and essential medical devices.

We love that a Solar Suitcase can help babies make safe passage into the world for years. The effects of giving a Solar Suitcase to a clinic are perpetual. And although we can't change the randomness of where we are born, we can change how babies are born. We continue to form partnerships with organizations committed to ending preventable maternal and newborn deaths, so more babies come into this world healthy and strong. #iseetheworld #lighteverybirth
