    New mother Akuol holds her 3-day-old baby girl in the maternity ward of a hospital we run in South Sudan. Conflict that has affected the country for over 3 years finally forced Akuol from her home while she was pregnant. Our hospital provides cost-free healthcare including antenatal, delivery, and post-natal services to mothers like Akuol so babies like hers have the best chance to survive and thrive.

    3-year-old Khaled* smiles for the camera in his new rainproof jacket we provided at a refugee camp in Greece— but the harsh reality is that dozens of refugees are at risk of freezing to death in Europe following heavy snows and bitterly cold temperatures in Greece and the Balkans. We're distributing children’s winter boots, jackets, hats, scarves, rain ponchos and baby snowsuits. Here's how you can help us reach more children like Khaled at the link in our bio. *Name changed for protection

    On January 12, 2010, a massive 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck #Haiti, affecting an estimated 3 million people and destroying 5,000 schools. Our emergency response reached over 1 million children and adults through relief and recovery programs, including re-opening schools and making them better able to withstand disasters. These children in Port-au-Prince were so excited to return to their lessons after we helped rebuild their school and train its teachers. #tbt

    4-year old Sangay peeks out the door of her home. She attends a preschool we support in Bhutan, where we’re helping preschool teachers implement play-based learning activities to help set kids up for a better chance of success. In a country where many children are falling behind even before completing the first grade, the new school activities give students the motivation to be present and learn the essential skills they’ll need in the years ahead.

    Pushpa, a nurse and midwife in Nepal, places a newborn baby in the arms of its grandmother. After a prolonged and difficult labor, the baby was born at home with a blocked airway. Pushpa, who had just finished our newborn care training, was able to resuscitate the baby with newly acquired skills. It wasn't until her own complicated birthing experience motivated her to become a healthcare worker, but overcoming obstacles to pursue her dream has resulted in unexpected rewards. “I became a health worker thinking I would help women,” she told us, ”but now I am also saving newborns.” #MondayMotivation Photo credit: Sanjana Shrestha

    This is what the future sounds like! These little girls from a small village in Myanmar sing and dance at their new early childhood development center, supported by our #Partner4Children community! We worked closely with the public and government to build the center and train teachers in best practices and good nutrition. Now these girls have something to sing about!
