Dios Proveera Child Survival Program (Dominican Republic)
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

In this community the most prevalent health issues among babies are conjunctivitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, fever and vomiting.

The Children Survival Program representatives visit mothers at their home twice a month. Participants receive cereal, cornflour, rice, oil, milk, chocolate, oats, beans, lentils, eggs, and wheat as well as vitamins and medicines prescribed by the doctor or health specialist.

Mothers (or caregivers) are also given necessary supplies such as mosquito nets and thermometers. Items related to hygiene of the baby are also given:

  • talcum powder
  • shampoo
  • diapers
  • baby clothes
  • bedspreads

Necessary home appliances to prepare food for their baby are also given.

Group topics at the local center include stages of development, basic first-aid, roles of the family members, and training against child abuse.

When you support the Child Survival Program, your charity donation helps Compassion’s local partners reduce infant and child mortality by:

  • Preventing illness. Regular prenatal and postnatal checkups contribute greatly to healthy births. And regular doctor visits and immunizations keep infants and toddlers healthy and happy. 
  • Giving children a healthy start. Nutritious food staples and supplements help children grow and stay strong.
  • Providing training. Mother and caregiver training means children receive mental and physical stimulation activities to improve and develop motor skills, social-emotional skills and cognitive development.
  • Empowering mothers and caregivers. Infant development and safety, nutrition, literacy and job-training skills are just a few of the topics the Child Survival Program training includes.
  • Offering spiritual nurturing. Mothers establish relationships with Christian Survival Specialists through regular home visits. They also build relationships and a community of faith with other women through local group meetings.
  • Including family training. When possible, fathers and other family members living in the home are included in training to help build a stable, secure environment for the child.
