Area of Focus / Goals

Saving Mothers and Children
At least 7 million children under the age of five die each year due to malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation.
To help reduce this rate, we provide immunizations and antibiotics to babies, improve access to essential medical services, and support trained health care providers for mothers and their children.
Our projects ensure sustainability by empowering the local community to take ownership of health care training programs.
