Save babies through supplements
2019-03-27

During our Maternal and Newborn Child Health (MNCH) program, we fight infant morality by giving pregnant women free prenatal vitamins to reduce the risks of maternal under-nutrition during their pregnancy. Maternal under-nutrition affects the placental development causing lifelong health complications to babies.  We also give Vitamin A supplement (promotes healthy growth, development and immune responses in children) and Albendazole (used for the treatment of a variety of parasitic worm infestations and diseases)to children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years. Join the fight! Our MNCH program is conducted twice annually in the African countries we work in. Our target beneficiaries live in rural communities in riverine or mountainous regions where accessibility is difficult, thus increasing the cost of transportation to these areas. Your help is needed to ensure these vulnerable children and women receive these desperately needed medications. Your generosity saves children and mothers. Donate now!
