Moms Helping Moms- an awareness campaign for MDG

How many lives do you think can be saved in 500 days? The answer just might surprise you. And believe it or not- you can help. By partnering with Save the Children, you can help make a difference in the life of a child. We can be moms helping moms around the world, working together to help save the children and bring a brighter future to children in need.

So what’s the problem exactly?

• Each day an estimated 800 mothers and 18,000 young children die from largely preventable causes.

• More than 1 million babies die on their first and only day of life across the world, and 2.9 million in their first month.

• The newborn crisis is much bigger than we may think, with a staggering 1.2 million stillbirths occurring during childbirth

• More than half of these maternal and under-fives deaths take place in locations beset by a high risk of conflict and/or natural disasters.

Is there any way to help?

  • We can stop this. Many of these deaths are preventable if the mother-to-be had a trained midwife to help them give birth safely
