Meet local health workers and the children they help to survive.
Each year, almost 9 million children in the developing world die of largely preventable and treatable illnesses before they reach the age of five – that equates to approximately 24,000 child deaths a day.
However, every 4 seconds a child survives thanks to the basic health care provided by local health workers.
Save the Children and the Ad Council are working together to mobilize citizen action in the U.S. to help local health workers save more children worldwide.
Help local health workers bring the good to the children who need it most.
You are one step away from helping children around the world survive.
GoodGoes.org features a customized Google map application of the local health worker’s village, blog posts, video bios, and a menu of ways people can get involved in this campaign to make a difference. Add your photo in support of the project to The Great Wall of Good Facebook application: http://apps.facebook.com/greatwallofgood.
Visit Good Goes and tell me what you think about the campaign and helping the children?
