These children are not dying because we don’t have the tools to save them. More than 80 per cent of all newborn deaths are caused by preventable and treatable conditions, including complications due to prematurity or during delivery, and infections like sepsis, meningitis and pneumonia.
No parents should experience the heartbreak of watching their child suffer or die. By making sure every mother and baby has access to affordable, quality care, we can save newborn lives.
Help save newborn lives.
We can end preventable newborn and child deaths in our lifetime – but we need more than a single drug or intervention. We need governments, health-care workers, communities and families to come together to provide affordable, quality health care for every mother and baby, starting with the most vulnerable.
UNICEF helps save newborn lives by connecting women and babies with vital resources like skilled birth attendants and pre- and postnatal care.
But the work is far from over!
Together with MyGiving, you can contribute and be a part of our work in keeping every child alive.
Give and encourage your friends and family to give as well! The little that you give can be magnified to newborn lives being saved.
We are seeking to raise up RM10,000 by end of January 2020 as a resolution and wish to help keep every child alive.
