Congress is running out of time to pass 2018 funding bills – and so much is at stake for kids in the U.S. and around the world. Millions of kids in the U.S. are missing out on high-quality early education, and 15,000 kids around the world die every day from preventable causes – like pneumonia and malaria. It’s not the time to cut vital head start and childcare programs, nor health and nutrition programs that help children survive.
Every year, 5.6 million children die from preventable causes like pneumonia, malnutrition and malaria. Legislation introduced in Congress – the Reach Every Mother and Child Act – would scale up effective health and nutrition programs to help more moms and kids survive and thrive.Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the Reach Act today.
The deadline for Congress to renew the Maternal, Infant, Early Childhood Home Visiting program (MIECHV) was September 30. MIECHV matches at-risk moms and dads and their kids with trained community members to support child literacy and teach parenting skills. Unfortunately, Congress hasn’t acted yet. While programs continue to run, it is getting more and more difficult to keep up as funding runs out. Urge Congress to renew MIECHV!
Through our Every Last Child campaign, we are working to reach the world’s forgotten children. Over the next three years, we will work to ensure 15 million of the world’s marginalized children have access to lifesaving health care and quality education.
