By age 4, children from low-income families are often already 18 months behind developmentally. Thanks to support our #Partner4Children community, we’re helping these U.S. children grow up healthy, learning and safe – so they have the future they deserve.

    New mother Akuol holds her 3-day-old baby girl in the maternity ward of a hospital we run in South Sudan. Conflict that has affected the country for over 3 years finally forced Akuol from her home while she was pregnant. Our hospital provides cost-free healthcare including antenatal, delivery, and post-natal services to mothers like Akuol so babies like hers have the best chance to survive and thrive.

    3-year-old Khaled* smiles for the camera in his new rainproof jacket we provided at a refugee camp in Greece— but the harsh reality is that dozens of refugees are at risk of freezing to death in Europe following heavy snows and bitterly cold temperatures in Greece and the Balkans. We're distributing children’s winter boots, jackets, hats, scarves, rain ponchos and baby snowsuits. Here's how you can help us reach more children like Khaled at the link in our bio. *Name changed for protection

    On January 12, 2010, a massive 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck #Haiti, affecting an estimated 3 million people and destroying 5,000 schools. Our emergency response reached over 1 million children and adults through relief and recovery programs, including re-opening schools and making them better able to withstand disasters. These children in Port-au-Prince were so excited to return to their lessons after we helped rebuild their school and train its teachers. #tbt
