A Mother's Day Gift that Gives Lasting Joy
Date:3/18/2010

For $13 You Can Save a Newborn’s Life and Still Afford Flowers for your Mom

Westport, CT (Vocus) March 18, 2010 -- This Mother’s Day, Save the Children has a special gift for your mom that can save a newborn’s life in some of the poorest, most remote communities in the world. For as little as $13 you can buy, in your own mother’s name, one Newborn Care Kit, which consists of lifesaving supplies and information for a new mother and her baby.

Depending on the country, the kit contains soap, a clean cloth to wrap the baby, guidance on breastfeeding and a knit baby cap to provide warmth during the first critical hours of life. It also helps with the costs of training community health workers who make home visits to mothers without easy access to hospitals or clinics.

Nearly 4 million babies die each year in their first month of life -- half within the first 24 hours of life -- mostly from preventable and treatable causes such as pneumonia and diarrhea. Thousands of these young lives can be saved with existing, affordable solutions. This gift can help give a mother the supplies and education she needs to give her baby a healthy start in life.
