Every Child deserves a 5th birthday but every year 7.6 million children lose that chance.
Right now, Save the Children is asking mothers around the world to raise their voices to help more children everywhere survive. Together we can insist that our children’s health and wellbeing is more than a personal priority it should be a global priority. Death from preventable causes like pneumonia, diarrhea and newborn complications are no longer acceptable. Officials from around the world are meeting in Washington, DC this week to discuss how to reduce child mortality in the years to come.
In order to reach the most at-risk children, basic healthcare must be delivered directly to families as close to home as possible. The bridge between this life saving care and a sick child is the local health worker. Local health workers are selected within the community and are trained to assess, classify, and treat, or refer children with signs of infection, disease, and other life-threatening conditions.
Let’s lift our voices and urge world leadears to take action and end child deaths by sharing and signing this petition.
