Today is Universal Children’s Day.
Children represent the future of life on our planet.
At MAP, we see investing resources to help children survive and develop to their full potential is, first and foremost, a moral imperative. Unfortunately, when it comes to health, not all children are on equal footing.
Families in many parts of the world lack access to even the most basic medicines. Each year, 5.9 million children under the age of five die, more than half from treatable diseases like pneumonia and diarrhea. That represents 18 children every second whose lives could have been saved.
That’s exactly why MAP International exists; we are part of a life-changing mission. Every day, somewhere in the world, children’s lives are saved because of the medicines MAP supplies.
