Moving from place to place

Babies with a future
Babies with a future

As we reach the year’s end, it is time to look at our project’s impact and reaffirm our commitment to next year’s goals. This year, RIJ and local partners distributed 180 baby kits in Karen State Myanmar.

The infant mortality rate in Myanmar continues to drop, and community health led initiatives like the baby kit are critical to improving conditions and increasing health and nutrition for young children who have been displaced by conflict.

Items like laundry soap, baby soap, baby wraps, and nail clippers are all items that we take for granted but can make a significant difference in the lives of new mothers who are already facing the difficulties of displacement.

Before the baby kit’s, many mothers don’t have access to supplies necessary to take care of their babies. One mother said “I’m very happy to receive the materials for my baby. We always live in the forest moving from place to place. We never hoped that there will be support for people like us.”

Thank you for your support this year, and we look forward to serving communities further in 2020 and beyond.
