Preventable child death is one of the saddest things in our world.

Preventable child death is one of the saddest things in our world.  Facing the death of a loved one is hard enough, let alone when simple steps could have been taken to prevent that death.  For most of us, we would do anything to spare the lives of those we love.  What if we really could do something to make a difference?

In too many places around the world, many deaths could be prevented with access to simple healthcare, education, and basic necessities like mosquito nets.  As one article states, “We are living in the midst of a global fight for child survival. It’s one that I believe we can win–and the work we do over the next 10 years will be critical to our success.”

The reality is that while the problem may seem too huge to address, progress is being made.  And even as we still hear about preventable death, lives are being saved.  Parents aren’t living with the same fear of losing their children unnecessarily and kids can have hope of making it to their next birthday.  Any life saved is a victory.
