Help Mothers and Children Around the World Through the “See Where the Good Goes” Campaign from Save the Children

Did you know that millions of children under the age of 5 die each year in the developing world from preventable or treatable illnesses, such as pneumonia, malaria, diarrhea and newborn complications? For most of us, a child with diarrhea is no big deal. But this common ailment can be deadly in countries with inadequate health care and information. Because of this tragic statistic, Save the Children and the Ad Council have started a new campaign called “See Where the Good Goes.” This campaign is designed to raise awareness of simple solutions to the preventable and treatable illnesses in the developing world. Through this program, you could be instrumental in saving lives in countries like Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Guatemala!

Local health workers are critical when it comes to newborn and child survival in the developing world. The basic health care they provide to children and mothers in developing countries saves a child every 4 seconds! The “See Where the Good Goes” program (GoodGoes.org) provides support to these local health workers.

The following video shows how local health workers are making a difference:

For Mother’s Day, why not give a gift to a mother in another part of the world? The gift of a healthy child means so much more than a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates. Please visit http://goodgoes.org/ to meet some of the local health workers and the children they’re helping. And find out how you can help, whether it’s financially, by spreading the word, or by becoming an advocate for better health. Thank you!
