Summary of activities

Living Child Inc's overall mission is to reduce the maternal and infant death rate in remote villages in the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea (PNG) by providing education and training, visual teaching aids and birthing kits to Community Health Workers and traditional Village Birth Attendants (VBAs). This education has helped the VBAs teach women in their village not only about family planning, pregnancy, birth and breast feeding but also about general health and wellbeing. The Community Health Workers as well as the VBAs have reported a huge reduction in maternal death rates of rural women and babies as well as an increase in the overall health of men, women and children due to cleaner villages and better hygiene.
