Health and Nutrition



Many children around the world are undernourished and suffer from preventable diseases. This gift supports Tearfund’s partners to provide children and families with access to effective health care, and nutrition and hygiene education to keep them strong.

How your gift helps

Every time you choose this gift, you’re playing a crucial role in Tearfund’s partners’ dedication to health projects across the globe. We’re grateful for your support.

In Phongsaly province in northern Laos, one in two children are not meeting growth milestones. Tearfund’s partner World Renew Laos is providing life-giving support to help families overcome the obstacles to good health, for example through pregnancy education and post-natal care, and training for local health workers to perform basic health checks and educate communities about preventable illnesses.

Young mothers like Hue Ja (pictured) have seen their children enjoy a strong start to life. Community health volunteers have supported these mothers, and they now encourage other expectant mothers with the knowledge and resources that have made a difference to their families.
