It might have been a story about medics traversing through rural Africa to bring healthcare to villagers via motorcycle. Or perhaps it was the one about a man in the highlands of Guatemala who is committed to reversing the long history of malnourishment of indigenous children in his country. Or maybe you saw Elizabeth Vargas in India, telling the story of the Embrace warmer, a new tool in fighting infant mortality.
You watched at least one of ABC’s compelling stories this past year and you acted. You made a contribution to one of the dozens of projects featured on SaveOne.net as part of ABC News' yearlong "Be the Change: Save a Life" programming.
Thanks to you and the SaveOne community,
- more than 4,300 Plumpy'nut nutrition treatments have been delivered to children in East Africa and the Congo
- 5,000 people have access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation via charity: water
- more than 200 mothers have a chance for safe childbirth in India, and
- 800 Guatemalan families' futures are more secure, having access to better nutrition.
But ABC is far from done.
On Good Morning America this morning, ABC News announced a new phase of the campaign; the Million Moms Challenge. A collaboration among ABC News, the United Nations Foundation, and some of the world’s leading NGOs, the Million Moms Challenge is a first-of-its kind initiative. GlobalGiving is honored to continue to provide the "take action" platform for this exciting campaign.
The Million Moms Challenge aims to connect one million Americans with millions of moms in developing countries, and also to increase awareness of the critical issues of pregnancy, childbirth and children's health everywhere.
We invite you to join the conversation at www.millionmomschallenge.com, and to support the Million Moms Fund which will be allocated among a dozen high-impact maternal health projects around the world:
Thank you for your continued generosity,
Donna Callejon and the GlobalGiving Team
