Providing Health, One Child At a Time
Thank you for making our #WaterforKirinda campaign a success! We saw an outpouring of support and gifts on World Water Day—bringing Kirinda one step closer to the reality of clean water. On behalf of those who will be impacted, we are grateful for the part you played.
April 25 is World Malaria Day, and we are choosing to dedicate this month’s focus to protecting vulnerable children from preventable illnesses. Did you know approximately 90 percent of all malaria deaths occur in Africa, and the majority of them are children?
In our work overseas, the common illnesses we see among children include malaria, diarrhea, typhoid, and malnutrition—all sicknesses that can be easily prevented with clean water and basic medical care.
Below are four action points you can invite your readers to rally around. Perhaps choose one to highlight in a post, or share them at intervals throughout the month on social media.
Mosquito nets are the most effective defense against malaria, and for only $25, they’re the most cost-effective defense yet. >>
Operation Baby Rescue provides restoration to gravely malnourished children. >>
Immunizations are the answer for the 20 million children who are living completely unprotected from preventable diseases. >>
World Help’s Medical Emergency Fund covers the cost of emergency care or surgery for children whose families are simply unable to afford treatment. >>
Continuing our discussion of what it means to be a Christian humanitarian blogger, this month we want to draw your attention to your “present,” the here-and-now of your every day. We believe that God has uniquely placed each individual on this team in a position to make a difference. And we believe He has equipped us with the talents and skills to do just that.
Noel Yeatts says in Chapter 4 of her book Awake, “I’ve heard it said, ‘We can be the most generous people we know, just with what we have.’”
