Reduce Child Mortality
Substantial progress has been made in reducing child mortality, but more children can be saved from death due to preventable causes. Focusing on newborns and reducing socio-economic disparities are
critical to further accelerate progress in child survival. Advances in health care have helped to improve numbers. However, thousands of children continue to die from preventable causes ranging from disease affecting both mother and child, low soci-economic status, poverty of the mother, as well as unfavorable circumstances during the perinatal period not forgetting postpartum depression and burdens that sometimes ultimately leads to newborn/infant abandonment. Our goal Is to provide safe houses where mothers can drop their babies for proper care, or enroll in sustainable programs as administered by the foundation that will enable otherwise unwilling mothers to be present in the care and upbringing of their children.
