Healthcare for Mothers and Children in Bangladesh
 
Every 4 minutes in Bangladesh, a child less than 1 month old dies because their mother didn't have access to proper post-natal and ante-natal care. The majority of these deaths can be prevented by providing children and their mothers with access to proper nutrition. By providing nutritional supplements to pregnant mothers, their newborn babies, and young children, we can drastically reduce child mortality. project reportread updates from the field
