Something as simple as a bike can save lives!
It only costs about $70 to purchase an International Planned Parenthood Federation Good Gift Bicycle for a midwife in a developing country.
If a midwife in a developing country owns a bike, she's able to visit more villages. Unfortunately, too many midwives lack cycle mobility, so, considering the local current price of a bicycle and its life-improving qualities for far-flung villagers, you couldn't deliver a better gift.
For us, riding a bike to visits is truly a luxury. But to midwives and other health care workers around the world, it's a necessity. Please think about making a donation!
