Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem Khairi and Little Angels' Memorial have discovered to be a major issue is the high rate of infant and maternal mortality among women of color in childbirth. There are several issues that are associated with infants dying such as low birth weight, and mothers not attending prenatal visits among many other issues. Although we understand this issue among all women; however, women of color's mortality rates are much higher and their chance of dying in childbirth is 4 to 5 times higher than any other race. Mothers that survive childbirth but have experienced the loss of their child are finding themselves suffering from mental health illnesses, such as severe depression, anxiety, PTSD, and so on. Another problem is the cost of burial for an infant. Many people don't think about the burial of an infant or understand that infant burial is expensive, and some families are not able to pay the cost associated with burial.

Infant Burial Program

The Infant Burial Program focuses on assisting low-income families with burial for their infant from 20 weeks gestation to 12-months of age. Our organization target childbearing ages. We designed an infant burial program for low-income families who cannot provide burial for their infant after passing away. Real-life experiences have shown us that assisting families in rural communities removes financial hardship and emotional and mental.
It’s known that many families result in a last-minute decision of cremation when funds are not available. Cremation may be the answer for some families. Meanwhile, for the families that are not in favor of cremation, it can bring on everlasting guilt and depression. Meanwhile, our program provides low-income families with an option they can live with; without making a last-minute decision with added depression. Our infant burial program reduces stress, depression, anxiety, and financial hardship while providing families with a decision that doesn’t haunt them.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization's goals are to decrease the infant and maternal mortality rate by reducing the number of cases created. Our organization provides burial assistance to the family which can vary from family to family. The needs are not always the same. However, we meet a family where they are and take care of things from there.

The plan is to provide these individuals in low-income areas with the emotional and mental health care they need by way of counseling sessions with a licensed counselor and a support group with women they are able to empathize. To increase resources, awareness, and education with preconception, prenatal and postnatal care.

The capabilities the organization has is inviting other organizations and businesses to collaborate with our organization.

Our organization has accomplished laying many infants to rest in their eternal homes.
We have a support group that teaches coping and managing skills. We have been able to provide FREE counseling to many women to help them have better lives.
Our organization has provided traditional food boxes for Thanksgiving along with paying utility bills and rent.
We have done the same for Christmas along with toys and gift cards for 100 kids.
