Legacy - Leaving a Gift in your Will

After providing for your family and friends you may wish to leave a charitable gift in your Will. Regardless of the size, a legacy gift to Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide will help us to make a lasting difference to the lives of many people.


For example, £15,000 would provide a robust anaesthetic system to a hospital in a poor country. If used for just one Caesarean section per day (a very conservative estimate) over 5 years this would save a total of 3,650 lives (mothers plus babies) at a cost of just £4 per life.


SAWW works to ensure safe anaesthesia is available to everyone who needs it.  As a result, we make a meaningful difference to the lives of people in poor countries who might not otherwise receive the surgical treatment they need for lack of anaesthesia.


We always recommend that you use a solicitor to make or update your Will.

In developing countries many women and babies die as a result of obstructed labour, yet they could be easily saved by caesarean sections if medical facilities with safe anaesthesia were available.


You can provide this by leaving a legacy to Safe Anaesthesia Worldwide. Just one machine will enable thousands of caesarean sections, as well as other essential operations, to be carried out every year, saving tens of thousands of lives over its lifetime.
