Many children can't survive past the age of 5 without a mother figure. And sadly, every day 18,000 children don't.
But many of these deaths are preventable … so we can do something about it! Stand with us this week and support child and maternal health.
Blogger Paige Ferrari explains how.
Five is a magic number.
When a child is born, the first thing the parents do is check: 5 fingers on each hand. 5 toes on each foot. For some reason there is such perfection within the number 5.
Unfortunately, every day 18,000 children around the world will die before seeing their fifth birthday and 800 women will loose their life in childbirth daily. This bond between mother and child is something that can only be divinely created. But like all things that grow, it must be nourished and sustained.
