Summary

Many Venezuelan women are forced to abort or leave their little babies to their fate because they cannot feed them. In the poorest sectors, 33% of children from 0 to 2 years of age have growth retardation. Venezuela's mortality rate among newborns is the highest in the world. We want to help 200 new moms by providing formula and necessary supplies. Help us save lives and help struggling new moms.

Challenge

The severe food shortage in the country affects everyone, but the poorest families are the ones who suffer the most. They don't have enough money to support basic baby needs like towels, diapers, cream, soap or formula. These basic supplies are essential to keep babies healthy.

Solution

South American Initiative will save 200 lives by giving new moms vital supplies for babies during the crucial first months. SAI will supply formula or nutritional supplements for those moms who have breastfeeding problems. Also, we will be providing baby powder, treatments for the prevention of dermatitis, diapers, shampoo, alcohol, and swabs. Help us save newborns who have not yet open their eyes to see the world.

Long-Term Impact

These babies will have a brighter beginning for the critical first few months of life in providing necessary nutrition and supplies. This project will save the lives of newborn children and aid in providing nutrition necessary for mental and physical development. We will provide necessary items for daily care of infants.
