Find out what we are doing to save the lives of mothers and babies around the world and how you can help.
Ending Preventable Deaths
16,000 children under the age of five die every day. Nadya was nearly one of them.
Born underweight in Tanzania, Nadya’s mom was taught about Kangaroo care, a skin-to-skin method to encourage breastfeeding and keep her daughter warm. Local health workers taught her mom that a nutritious and diversified diet for both of them will help Nadya grow up healthy.
Simple solutions like these can save lives.
