Each year, almost 9 million children in the developing world die of largely preventable and treatable illnesses before they reach the age of five – that equates to approximately 24,000 child deaths a day.
However, every 4 seconds a child survives thanks to the basic health care provided by local health workers.
Save the Children and the Ad Council are working together to mobilize citizen action in the U.S. to help local health workers save more children worldwide.
Mothering.com would like to pledge it’s support of these health workers, and the important actions they take everyday to help children worldwide.
Please enjoy the video about Ada, a health worker in Indonesia, and the work she is doing as a midwife. Then consider supporting these workers in your own way at http://www.goodgoes.org. You can also add a link to GoodGoes.org, or this page, on your facebook page or blog, or tweet it.
