Challenge

Since 2014, 68.54% of children mortality cases in Cartagena could have been avoidable. Nowadays, the rate has increased dramatically; it has reached 11.5 deaths per 1.000 births. The main reasons are associated to acute respiratory infections and diarrheal diseases. In addition, since 2015, 8.38% of the city's babies have been born with low weight.

Solution

This project aims to save the lives of 40 babies between 0 and 24 months old and who have high risk of death, through health and nutritional interventions. We also teach the parents how to take care of their children, show them how to practice healthy habits and sickness prevention.

Long-Term Impact

This project will save the lives of 40 babies in Cartagena, Colombia, allowing children to grow up healthier with good nutrition habits and health care.
