Sadly, 1 child dies every 4 seconds largely from preventable and treatable causes due to the lack of basic health care. Frontline health workers are the keys to saving millions of children’s lives around the world. Global estimates suggest we need at least a million more frontline health workers in developing countries. In Bangladesh, a country ranked 186 out of 224 in infant mortality, there is a demand for over 4,000 trained health workers. Frontline health workers are the heroes of our newborn and child survival campaign (like the Raid/Party Healers of World of Warcraft) because they help children all over the world survive threats like newborn complications, pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, and malnutrition.
Your gift combined with those of others can help us fill the health worker shortage in Bangladesh and provide things like a clean baby wrap, guidance on newborn care and counseling as well as treatment for diarrhea, the second leading cause of death in children under 5 years old.
