Each year, almost 9 million children within the developing world die of largely preventable and treatable illnesses before they reach the age of five – that equates to approximately 24,000 child deaths a day.
As tragic as that reality is, hope exists, as every 4 seconds a child survives thanks to the basic health care provided by local health workers who help children all over the world survive threats like newborn complications, pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria, and malnutrition. Save the Children and the Ad Council are now working together, mobilizing citizen action in the U.S. to help local health workers save more children worldwide through a campaign called GoodGoes. See their Child Survival Solutions.
Save the Children works in more than 120 countries, including the United States, serving 64 million children and many others working to save and improve children’s lives, including parents, community members, local organizations, and government agencies.
