Child Survival Programme

Rescuing, nurturing and discipling little ones

The first few years of a child’s life are vital to their development and through our Child Survival Programme we can reach the most vulnerable children even before they have been born.

In partnership with the local church, we provide antenatal care for vulnerable mothers, ensure children are vaccinated against deadly diseases and give mothers the skills they need to earn a living.

Together, we give children the very best possible start in life and ensure their mothers are well equipped to care for them.

Why Child Survival is so important

Everyday a shocking 17,000 children under the age of five die, most from completely preventable causes.

It’s heart-breaking that often the simplest of interventions like basic healthcare, hygiene and sanitation, vaccinations, nutritious food and safe water could have prevented these deaths. It’s to save these precious children that our Child Survival Programme exists.

We make sure we reach babies and their families early, even before they have been born if possible.

What We Provide

In partnership with local churches, our Child Survival Programmes provides:


Our healthcare specialists provide one-on-one pregnancy and parenting support.

Critical Medical Resources

We make sure pregnant mums have access to pre- and post-natal checkups, child birth assistance and immunisations.

Baby and Toddler Supplies

All our families receive essentials such as nappies, blankets, clothing and hygiene products.

Emotional Support

Support from a community of mums facing the same fears and circumstances can be vital to pregnant or new mums.

Basic Nutrition

We keep out mums and babies healthy with clean water, nutritious food and extra vitamins if they need them.

Spiritual Guidance

Throughout everything our staff and church volunteers love the families in our care as Christ would.
