Many Venezuelan women prefer to abort or leave out 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 already 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.
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.
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 diaperitis, diapers, shampoo, absolute alcohol and swabs. Help us save newborns who have yet to even open their eyes and see the world.
These babies after the first months of life will be very healthy and will overcome malnutrition. This project will save the lives of newborn children and will keep them away from the danger that constantly tries to affect their lives. South American Initiative will take care of everything they need.
