At Florette Skincare we believe "true beauty stem from within".
As part of our commitment in helping mothers and children in need, we pledge to donate a portion of our proceeds to our charity of the year - ‘Australians for Women’s Health’ (A4WH). The reason why we chose to support A4WH is because their vision coincides with ours, that is “the health of families and communities is strongly tied to the health of women. The illness or death of a women has serious consequences for the health of her children, her family and the community”.
Every day around the world, 1,000 women die as a result of pregnancy complications. Ninety-nine percent of these deaths occur in developing countries. In Nepal, a woman dies in labour every 4 hours and a baby, every 15 minutes. The large majority of these deaths are preventable.
A4WH is currently building a hospital for mothers and babies in Charikot, NE Nepal, an area devastated by the earthquake in 2015. Apart from providing critical care for those in need, the hospital will become a major teaching centre for doctors, midwives and nurses. It will also be the base for an extensive community health program, providing essential public health measures and medical research in the area.
