Mother’s Care

Description

Mothers and children wait for assistance at a feeding center in south central Somalia.

Emergency feeding for children and pregnant and breastfeeding women helps to prevent malnutrition or death for young children, and pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.

The number of children dying under the age of 5 declined from 12.7 million per year in 1990 to 5.9 million in 2015, the first year under-5 deaths dropped below 6 million.

Still, every day 16,000 children die, many from preventable causes. With better care for mothers with children in the critical first month of a newborn’s life, we can drive the number of child deaths even lower.

Please pray for babies and mothers in need around the world.
