Urge Your Senators to Cosponsor the Reach Every Mother and Child Act
Meet Mwayuma and Nadya. When Nadya was born underweight in Tanzania, her mom, Mwayuma, was taught Kangaroo Care, a practice where a baby is placed skin to skin with her mother to help her grow. Mwayuma also learned about the importance of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months.
Low-cost, high impact solutions saved Nadya’s life. Unfortunately, 5.9 million children each year aren’t so lucky. They die from preventable causes like pneumonia, diarrhea and malaria.
Legislation introduced in the Senate – the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (S. 1730) – would scale up effective health and nutrition programs, like Nadya received, to help more moms and kids survive and thrive.
Urge your senators to cosponsor the Reach Act today.
