This holiday season, give a life-changing gift!
Looking for a unique gift this holiday season? Ever think about a goat? These unique gifts from Million Moms Challenge partners can change lives and uplift communities for under $50. Help break the cycle of malnutrition in Guatemala or prevent the transmission of HIV from a mother to her child. Choose the perfect gift for your loved one while making a difference.
- In many rural indigenous communities of Guatemala, childhood malnutrition rates are near 80 percent. Chronic malnutrition puts children at far greater risk of dying from common childhood diseases. For $40, you can buy a goat for a family in Guatemala – and improve a child’s potential in life.
- Every second a child in Indonesia dies before reaching their 5th birthday due to malnutrition. But there is an easy and inexpensive solution: Breastfeeding. Unfortunately, the number of newborns being breastfed in Indonesia is declining due to several misconceptions. For $47, you can help training for a mother to be a peer-counselor and organize Mothers Support Group in her community.
- In the small southern African country of Lesotho, high rates of maternal mortality and morbidity threaten the country’s young mothers. For $50, you can help Partners In Health on the ground in Lesotho supply blood pressure cuffs for every prenatal visit. Every woman deserves the right to celebrate the birth of her child without fear and with hope for a healthy future.
- The Million Moms Fund is dedicated to creating a global community, building on the common dream that every mother shares for her child: a healthy pregnancy, a safe birth and a baby who will survive and thrive. Your donation of $50 to the Million Moms Fund could prevent one case of mother-to-child HIV transmission.
- Almost half of all deaths of women age 15-49 in Afghanistan result from complications during pregnancy and childbirth. Most of these deaths could be prevented with increased access to maternal health services. Your gift of $50 will help World Vision improve maternal health in Afghanistan by providing access to essential maternal/newborn services, including training community health workers and midwives in safe, community-based birthing and newborn care.
