And they shall name him Emmanuel … God is with us.

– Matthew 1:23b

From Somalia, to Indonesia, to Nepal, Tearfund’s local Christian partners are delivering hope for many of the world’s most vulnerable families through our support of maternal child health programs.

  • Delivering hope to women through the training of traditional birth attendants
  • Hope for children, who now have life saving access to nutrition and health care.
  • Hope for a future where every child is empowered to fulfil their God-given potential on Earth.

Iqro, spent her early years of motherhood watching her three children battle life-threatening malnutrition and diarrhoea.

In Somalia, in the face of some of the worst health indicators in the world, Tearfund’s partner Medair is working to improve nutrition for infants and support mothers with better access to health services and even mental health support. Through care groups, Medair is able to build safe spaces for women to share and learn about how to holistically care for their babies, through nutrition advice and clinic appointments.

Now, more women in these communities are accessing support during pregnancy and are applying effective hygiene practices. One mother, Iqro, spent her early
years of motherhood watching her three children battle life-threatening malnutrition and diarrhoea.

But when her fourth baby was born, she was equipped with new understanding, strategies and a community of support - her newest arrival quickly became her healthiest!

“Now my child is 19 months old and he is the healthiest and strongest among my children. He has not suffered from diarrhoea,” Iqro shared.

We invite you to prayerfully consider a gift to Tearfund to help support vulnerable mums and bubs.
