Thanks to the bold advocacy of our advocates, attention to maternal/child health is gaining ground in the House!
While Jack and his peers aren’t habitual visitors to congregational offices, they made a special trip (with their moms) to Capitol Hill on August 5 to urge senators to support the bipartisan Reach Every Mother and Child Act of 2015, which will pave the way for the end of preventable maternal and child deaths globally by 2035.
Since 1990, nearly 100 million children around the world have been saved due to global efforts to reduce child mortality, and maternal deaths have been cut nearly in half. The US government has played a large role in this great success story. Yet still, each day, more than 17,000 children’s lives and nearly 800 mothers’ lives are lost due mostly to preventable causes. If you’re like us, you think this is unacceptable.
