Help babies survive

Why should you give to child survival?

Most of the millions of children who die every year pass away in their first year of life. The majority of these deaths are preventable.

When you give to child survival, you will help churches provide:

  • Pre- and postnatal care
  • Nutrition for malnourished moms and babies
  • Education on breastfeeding, nutrition and disease prevention
  • Spiritual guidance for moms, including the opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ
