Four high-impact, innovative activities your donation will support.

Improving child health

Our strategy is founded on a set of evidence-based and cost-effective preventive interventions. For newborns and children under two, interventions include essential newborn care, appropriate breastfeeding, adequate iron, full immunisation, oral rehydration therapy and de-worming, among others.

Improving maternal health

For pregnant women, interventions include breastfeeding, adequate diet, iron/folate supplements, malaria prevention, birth preparedness and healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy, along with access to maternal health services.

Treating acute malnutrition

Together with communities and government authorities, we can provide life-saving treatment of acute malnutrition during emergencies and situations of protracted food insecurity, or when healthcare access is limited. We also facilitate community- and home-based rehabilitation and behaviour change for families with malnourished children.


Training community health workers

We equip and train community members, often volunteers, to work as community health workers. They visit vulnerable families in places with limited access to healthcare, providing emergency frontline care and life-saving interventions. For example, they can help prevent child deaths from diarrhoea, pneumonia and malaria. They also play a vital role in supporting pregnant women and mothers to make good health choices.
