Helping Children Worldwide

Campaign to Support Helping Children Worldwide

Helping Children Worldwide focuses on children and families affected by extreme poverty, with a focus on access to education and health care, child survival, and maternal care.   By partnering with local government organizations and the local church, we support education, childhood nutrition, infant and maternal survival, and family stability.



THERE IS GOOD NEWS! 

Because of organizations like Helping Children Worldwide and Medical Services such as those of Mercy UMC Hospital, maternal and infant mortality rates and lower than they were just 10 years ago.

Unfortunately, UNICEF reports that Sierra Leone still has the highest maternal mortality ratio in the world, with 1 in 17 mothers dying in childbirth in their lifetimes and 3% of women in labor dying during childbirth each year. 6% of babies die at birth, and 8% of children who survive birth will die before they reach the age of six. This makes Sierra Leone one of the most dangerous places for mothers to give birth, and for children to be born.

Join Mercy Hospital and Helping Children Worldwide to boost the joy of motherhood and help mothers and children benefit from the free quality prenatal and maternity clinics. 

Together we can help save the lives of both mothers and their babies from complications relating to childbirth. We can help mothers save the lives of their babies from preventable causes such as acute malnutrition, malaria, diarrhea, measles, and others.

It takes so little to make a difference!

The cost of care for one mother is so small, but it is important.  Prenatal care and a regular delivery is just $35.  A cesarean surgically assisted delivery at Mercy is $100.
