Children deserve to live & be happy

A child born anywhere in the world has the right to grow up and have a productive life. Unfortunately, kids aren't able to do this in many places in the world because they don't have access to lifesaving emergency care, provided by specialty-trained Emergency Care Providers. At Global Emergency Care, we are working to change this. We train the available health workforce to provide that lifesaving emergency care in places where none exists. 

In fact, our recent research shows that for every $117 invested in our program, one child's life will be saved. This is incredibly compelling evidence for the importance of this program. Not to mention a very small sum of money to save a child's life. Our goal by December 31st is to raise $58,500 to save the lives of 500 children, and we need your help to get there!

Our ECPs save the life of 1 out of every 26 children they treat. Without this program, none of these children would have survived. Not only that, but it only costs $117 to save the life of one of these children. 

To put a name and face to the statistics is the following story about Precious. Precious was sick; too weak to hold her head up, too tired to cry as her father carried her into the emergency department. What follows is the story of how two of GEC's Emergency Care Practitioners, Deus and Teddy, saved Precious' life. Her story represents that of thousands of other children whose lives have been saved by ECPs. >>> Read more about Precious' precarious journey

Your support today makes our lifesaving work possible.
