Elim Pentecoste Babati Child Survival Program (Tanzania)
In Tanzania, west of Arusha, poverty is taking its toll on newborn babies. As a result, there is a high infant mortality rate in the community of Babati.
Mothers in this community often have no access to medical facilities. As a result, these young mothers face complications during delivery.
In turn, newborn babies tend to suffer from preventable diseases as well as malnutrition at the beginning of their fragile lives.
This is where Compassion’s Child Survival Program (CSP) steps in.
Located west of Arusha, the Elim Pentecoste Babati Child Survival Program is coming alongside mothers to help them deliver and raise a healthy baby.
Mothers in this CSP are taught:
- how to stay healthy during pregnancy
- health education
- safe food preparation
- how to encourage healthy development in their baby
Mothers who attend this CSP receive nutritious food and vitamins, which are essential to the growth and development of their baby.
They also learn about Jesus and receive a Bible.
When you support this center you are not just sustaining the life of an infant, you are providing a chance for mothers and babies to thrive.
