Child Survival Program: Hope for the Future
In 2010 Compassion partnered with a local church in Ruma, Bangladesh to open a Child Survival Program (CSP). Ruma is a remote village where children and their mothers lack the basic necessities for a healthy life: nutritious food, educational resources and health care. Most of the pregnant mothers, and mothers with very young children, are ignored by their families and often do not receive healthy food, prenatal care or medical treatment. Poverty and ignorance are major reasons for this deprivation.
