Your Child Survival Program At Work
This Child Survival Program is a ministry of Victoria de la Fe Evangelical Church in cooperation with Compassion.

Trained Christian staff members from the church reach out to mothers and their children through monthly home visits and counseling and help them access needed medical care.

$20 monthly

The mountainous community of La Victoria de Guamani is home to 20,000 residents. Common health problems in this area include parasites, malnutrition, diarrhea and respiratory infections.

Most adults in La Victoria de Guamani are unemployed but some work in domestic services or as street vendors and earn the equivalent of $100 per month. This community needs schools, employment opportunities and basic necessities such as food and clothing.

Participants of the Nueva Generacion Child Survival Program (CSP) regularly receive supplemental foods, such as flour and grains, along with mosquito nets and first-aid supplies. The center distributes vitamins and provides children and their caregivers timely immunizations and checkups.

Pregnant mothers receive regular prenatal care. In a community where many mothers cannot afford medical care, the Child Survival Program ensures that each mother has access to a trained birth attendant or doctor during delivery of her baby.

Mothers enrolled in the program grow spiritually and socially through Bible studies and prayer meetings. They are trained in holistic child care, including health, nutrition and breast-feeding. Many attend literacy classes and also learn vocational and income-generating skills such as sewing and dressmaking.

When you support the Children 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 topics included in the Child Survival Program training.
  • 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.
