Protecting mums and babies in Asia

 

Our healthcare work in Asia is giving babies the best start

Our healthcare work in Asia is giving babies the best start</br></br>
For women and young children in Asia, surviving childbirth, and the first five years of life, is no mean feat.

Mums in this part of the world are much more likely to die while giving birth to their babies than mums living in the developed world. Every day there are 830 maternal deaths – 180 of them are from Southern Asia, compared to 5 in developed countries. 

More than 30% of children in South East Asia are stunted, which is the highest in the world.  

We're working with communities to turn these numbers around, by getting basic medicines, nutritional support, and education to mums and their communities.
