EVERY CHILD HAS THE RIGHT TO LIVE A HAPPY & HEALTHY LIFE
NO MOTHER SHOULD HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN BEING CHILDLESS OR RISK DYING FROM GIVING BIRTH
Without health, we as human beings have nothing. Without health, it would be difficult to have a decent quality of life. More than 4.5 million children worldwide die needlessly each year from preventable, treatable illnesses including malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia, neonatal infection, pre-term delivery, or lack of oxygen at birth.
The tragedy is that treatments and solutions to prevent these deaths exist at the global and national level but it is a challenge to reach every mother, infant, and child that need support. Babyphoria is dedicated to supporting mothers and infants at the grassroots level to ensure no woman or infant is left behind. Strengthening access to quality basic health care services among severely impoverished populations is a fundamental priority for Babyphoria.
Barriers to reduce maternal and child mortality includes poverty, lack of family and social support as well as cultural beliefs. The work of Babyphoria is to provide interventions to address these barriers so that mothers can provide the very best care to their children.
EVERY DAY, APPROXIMATELY 830 WOMEN DIE FROM PREVENTABLE CAUSES RELATED TO PREGNANCY AND CHILDBIRTH.
MATERNAL MORTALITY IS HIGHER IN WOMEN LIVING IN RURAL AREAS AND AMONG POORER COMMUNITIES.
THE RISK OF A CHILD DYING DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF LIFE IN AFRICA IN 5 TIMES HIGHER THAN THAT IN EUROPE.
99% OF ALL MATERNAL DEATHS OCCUR IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES.
