Healthy Babies

Infant Survival
The Issue

When a pregnant woman in the developing world is ill or malnourished and gives birth alone, the health of both mother and baby are at grave risk. Your church can help give moms and babies in poverty a fighting chance by supporting the Child Survival Program.

Rescuing vulnerable moms and babies in Jesus' name
is a servant-approach to global evangelism.
A Pastor's Perspective

Craig Groeschel, Senior Pastor of LifeChurch.tv, says his church supports a Compassion Child Survival Program in Ecuador because "it is a tangible, proactive effort that is not only saving lives and making a daily difference, but is leading parents and children to Christ."

Compassion's Child Survival Program. It's a life-saving, life-changing intervention on behalf of the world's most vulnerable babies and mothers. Trained Child Survival Specialists from Compassion's indigenous church partners make home visits to moms and babies in the program, tending to their physical, emotional and spiritual needs before, during and after birth. It's a relational discipleship approach that strengthens women and families by pouring the love and hope of Jesus into their lives at a critical time.

How Does It Work? how-it-works-child-survival

For $20 per month, people in your church or ministry group can invest in a specific Child Survival Program located in an indigenous community. The program they choose to support will provide nutrition, health care and spiritual nurturing for local mothers and babies in need. Programs also empower moms through literacy classes and the opportunity to build income-generating skills so they can help lead their families out of poverty.
