Healthy Mums and Babies

Healthy Mums and Babies



Poverty creates many challenges for mums and babies. Help them overcome these hurdles and thrive, with a gift that supports pre- and post-natal care, volunteer birth attendants and health education.

How your gift helps

In the remote province of Papua, Indonesia, underlying poverty creates many challenges for mums and babies. But Tearfund’s partner Yasera is helping families overcome these hurdles and thrive, through their Families Strengthening (FAST) project.

As a result of the project, young children have recovered from life threatening, preventable diseases. Mothers are equipped to recognise signs of malnutrition, provide healthy diets for their families, and are active in sharing with the other mums in the community. “Because of the lessons from Yasera, the sicknesses that happened to my older son, have not happened to my younger son.” – Mama Herlin, FAST project participant.
