Maternal-Child Health Project – Philippines
This project aims reduce maternal and child mortality by building new health clinics, expanding existing clinics, and training community-based health workers such as nurses, midwives and community health volunteers. Women and men will be trained on the importance of health and nutrition. Mothers will be taught how to grow nutritious fruits and vegetables close to their homes in kitchen gardens. Focusing primarily on women of reproductive age, newborn and children under five, the program will directly impact an estimated 100,000 people, including 33,000 children.
