Rescue Babies & Mothers

Ninos en Victoria Child Survival Program (El Salvador)
Jucuapa, El Salvador

In a community where most adults are out of work it is difficult to support a family. Day labor is the primary source of income, forcing most families to get by on $80 per month.

Compassion’s Child Survival Program rescues babies by reducing infant mortality and helping mothers properly care for their children in less-than-adequate conditions.

The program provides children with nutritious meals, pre-school preparation and literacy training. The center staff will also provide parents' school and family counseling for the parents or guardians of your sponsored child. 

$20 monthly

The plains of Jucuapa is home to approximately 30,000 adults - most of whom are unemployed, with few adults that are able to earn a meager income of $80 per month, providing fundamental meals such as maize, beans, rice, and potatoes. However, most households within this community are not able to provide their children with basic necessities such as medical check ups, clean water, and a nutritious meal.

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.
