Trócaire Gift of Safe Motherhood

by | Dec 4, 2013 | Justice Archive, Trócaire, Trocaire Gifts, ZZ_All

The birth of a baby is such a precious time.

But in Somalia it can be a worrying time for expectant mothers too, due to lack of access to medical facilities and the threat of complications in childbirth.

Your thoughtful gift of safe motherhood will provide essential training for midwives to safely deliver babies and deal with emergency situations, making childbirth safer and happier for more mothers and babies in Somalia.

Your gift will also provide mothers with a baby kit with a shawl to swaddle their baby, together with a bag, powder and soap.

This gift is part of our Somalia programme.


Each Trócaire Gift is sourced locally and sustainably from the country where it is needed. So the gifts not only support families in the world’s poorest places, they grow the local economy too. You will receive a card as a symbol of the Trócaire Gift you have purchased. You can then give this card to a friend, family member or client to explain the meaning of the gift. Alternatively an e-card can be emailed directly to your chosen recipient.

When you buy online, you can choose either a traditional gift card or an e-card. The traditional card will be posted out to you, or if you choose to send an e-card, it will be emailed to your chosen recipient immediately or at a time you schedule. Your e-card can be sent to anyone you choose – a friend, family member or client. You can enter a personal message alongside a description of how your gift will support families and communities in the developing world..

You can buy Trócaire Gifts cards in person at selected retail outlets countrywide, by phone, by post, and by fax. Full information of where and how to purchase your gifts is available on our Trócaire Gifts Buy Offline page.
