Survival for Moms and Babies in Guatemala
How does Compassion help Moms and babies survive? Critical care - Your support helps secure access to pre and postnatal care, skilled attendants and medical intervention when necessary. Home-based Care - Mothers are visited in their homes monthly by a Survival specialist, who offers education in prenatal care and early child-rearing as well as one on one biblical mentoring. Group-based Learning - At these church based activities, moms learn skills to earn an income and gain vital knowledge including basic literacy, in importance of breastfeeding and how to prevent malnutrition and disease. These groups combat isolation through a supportive community of mothers who together, learn about the God who loves them.
