“The world loses 4.5 million children under age one every year.”

Nurture a new generation

Each Mums and Babies survival project reduces child mortality rates by equipping new and expecting mothers with critical care and guidance. Your support provides:

icon

Home-based care

Monthly home visits provide mothers and their newborns with health check-ups, nutritional support and education, immunisations, sanitation training and more.

icon

Advocacy for mums

Guidance and advocacy that ensures mothers can fairly access local health services and the essential support they need to thrive, including medical care and birth attendants.

icon

Training and development

Learning opportunities, training sessions and expert advice on how to support their families and monitor their child’s healthy development.

icon

Community support networks

Creating a support network where mothers develop their relational skills to combat isolation. Mothers also receive emotional support to thrive in their role as parents.

The first year of life is fragile

Your support helps babies grow, learn and thrive from before their first breath to their first birthday. In partnership with local churches, mums and babies receive personalised care to meet their most urgent needs, which often differ between countries.
