PAG Buoy Child Survival Program (KENYA)
Babies in Kenya are often born malnourished and underdeveloped. Many do not live past their first week. But your gift can make all the difference!
Through this center, mothers and babies receive nutritious food such as beans, eggs, fruit and porridge. The center provides hygiene supplies, including soap and towels, as well as vitamins and first-aid supplies. Survival Specialists — trained Christian workers — reach out to caregivers and their children through monthly home visits and counseling, and help them access medical care.
Plus, each pregnant mother has access to a trained birthing attendant or doctor during delivery of her baby. This alone saves countless lives!
Mothers enrolled in the Child Survival Program grow spiritually and socially through Bible studies. They are trained in nutrition, breast-feeding and early childhood care. Many attend literacy classes and also learn income-generating skills such as soap making and baking. Training also covers how to start a business, bookkeeping and business management. Lives are saved — and also transformed!
This center, KE-C20, is a ministry of PAG Buoye Church in cooperation with Compassion.
