There’s no better time than the holidays to give to children in need. Your tax-deductible donation helps us create pioneering programs that achieve positive change for children – the type of change that truly saves lives. Like allowing us to offer lifesaving antibiotics to babies with pneumonia. Or showing parents how to care for preemies when incubators aren’t available. Or bringing clean water and toilets into communities to help stop the spread of disease.

Every minute, 10 children under five die – more than half of them from preventable causes. This Child Health Week – join us in making change for children.

Spread the Word: Child Health Week is November 12-19

World Pneumonia Day (Nov 12). Pneumonia is the #1 Killer of Children under 5, but we know how to prevent and treat it.
World Prematurity Day (Nov 17). 1 out of 10 babies are born too soon, and this rate is rising

Prematurity is not a death sentence. And toilets stop diseases from spreading. We can make sure that children everywhere have access to this lifesaving care.
