    Our Child Sponsorship programs are helping malnourished babies in El Salvador. In partnership with the Ministry of Health, we deliver food and information about breastfeeding and appropriate food handling practices to help moms and babies survive and thrive. We tracked exciting improvements by monitoring the weight and height of 392 girls and boys under the age of five. #WhyISponsor

    Hoodo collects water following a Save the Children water delivery in drought-affected Somaliland. Life-threatening child malnutrition rates continue to rise to alarming levels in Somalia. We truck water several times per week to Hoodo's village, which has largely run out of water and has suffered large scale livestock losses.

    Newborn baby Shephard was born premature, but our community health workers in Malawi are working to ensure his survival with interventions like Kangaroo Mother Care. The prolonged skin-to-skin contact helps the youngest and most vulnerable children by promoting breastfeeding and reducing infection—all the while providing a great bonding opportunity for mom and baby. “I’m optimistic,” mother Ester tell us. “I notice that he likes the warmth and tranquility when I put him on my chest. I think this will go well, and that he has a future.”

    "Young mothers are learning how to keep their babies healthy, and nothing is more important," says a nurse midwife at our new Healthy Moms and Babies program in the Philippines. Through this program, we train health professionals in birthing and delivery techniques, and teach parents how to keep their infants healthy through practices like breastfeeding. We're thankful to our #childsponsors whose support has a crucial impact in this community. #WhyISponsor

    7-year-old Anisa eats her lunch in the one-room makeshift home that her family lives in following earthquake destruction in Nepal. Her town was badly hit by the 2015 earthquake which took lives, homes and livelihoods, putting children in jeopardy of trafficking. Anisa attends our Child-Friendly Space where our staff informs girls about the dangers of child trafficking.
