It’s another giving day on our 2015 Advent Calendar. Our family’s focus today is on world health.
Plan Canada provides a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries. And, today, via their Gifts of Hope program, we will sponsor a newborn checkup for a mother and child.
Checking up on moms and their newborns within the first three days of the baby’s birth is critical. With this gift, you’ll help ensure that babies thrive and new moms recover well from the delivery by supporting the essential work of community health workers in developing countries. In communities where health care centres are difficult to access and infant mortality rates are already too high, home wellness visits can save lives.
What will you do, today, to be a global citizen? Dream it! Do it!
