As a Child Survival Advocate, your impact will go far beyond your monthly gift. More than 90% of babies in this program are born full-term and at a healthy weight. They will carry the impact of this gift their entire life. By partnering with this program, your gift gives babies in poverty a chance to survive and grow healthy in spite of where they were born.
Child Survival Advocates Make a Difference. Here Is How:
When you support the Child Survival Program, you become a Child Survival Advocate whose donations help Compassion's local partners reduce infant and child mortality and encourage hope by:
- Preventing Illness. A trained specialist attends the mother's birth and regular prenatal and postnatal checkups contribute greatly to healthy births. Regular doctor visits and immunizations help keep infants healthy, happy and growing.
- Giving children a healthy start. Nutritious food and supplements help children grow and stay strong.
- Empowering mothers and caregivers. Infant development and safety, nutrition, literacy and job-skills are just a few of the topics the Child Survival Program training includes.
- Offering spiritual nurturing. Mothers establish relationships with Chrisitan Survival Specialists through regular home visits. They also build relationships and a community of faith with other women through local group meetings.
