Sadamo Genet CSP (ETHIOPIA) - ETC15
This Child Survival Program is a ministry of Sadamo Guenet Church in cooperation with Compassion.
Trained Christian staff members from the church reach out to mothers and their young children through regular home visits and counseling, and help them access needed medical care.
CSP participants regularly receive cooking oil, macaroni and flour. The center provides hygiene supplies, including soap and shampoo, as well as vitamins and other nutrients for mothers and their children. Children and their caregivers receive 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. Mothers are trained in holistic child care, including health, nutrition and hygiene. Many attend literacy classes and also learn vocational and income-generating skills.
Please remember to pray for these families - that the children will grow up healthy and that infant and maternal mortality will decline. Praise God for enlisting His people to help vulnerable mothers and babies.
