More than 21,000 children under the age of five die from easily preventable causes every single day. Compassion run a child survival programme which educates mothers (before and after birth) in vulnerable areas in critical child care skills and how to avoid malnutrition; and feeds malnourished children from birth to the age of three. Not only does the programme save thousands of lives, it encourages healthy and safe environments for the children to develop in the most healthy way, enabling them to have better prospects and opportunities for years to come.
Praise God for all the healthy babies that are born each day through the child survival programme. Pray that God would use the programme to reach more mothers in communities that need it, and pray for the ongoing health of all the mothers that they are currently serving.
