Every four minutes in Bangladesh, an infant dies because its mother didn’t have access to proper pre-natal and post-natal care. Every 45 minutes, a woman in Bangladesh dies from complications in pregnancy or childbirth.
BRAC trains and deploys a network of health promoters to provide basic nutrition and care to pregnant women and their newborns. With $150, BRAC can provide life-saving nutrition to five mothers and their newborn babies. Early childhood nutrition dramatically reduces the number of health complications later in life. Your gift toward nutrition will have lifelong impact.
