Keeping the Donations Flowing Past the Halfway Mark

Posted May 19, 2015 by NICHQ

This is one of a series of posts this month about NICHQ's infant health work, which is being featured in in The Huffington Post's 'The Next 10' Campaign. Learn more about this awareness and fundraising campaign and how you can donate.

It’s halfway through The Huffington Post’s “The Next 10” awareness building and fundraising campaign and NICHQ has raised nearly $4,000! We couldn’t be more excited that the cause of reducing maternal and infant mortality by investing in health infrastructure is getting attention.

Your support allows us to continue our multi-sector, multidisciplinary work to reduce infant mortality and improve birth outcomes in the United States. While we hope you will take the NICHQ $50 challenge and donate to our campaign, we would be remiss if we didn’t shine a light on some of the other great organizations within “The Next 10” campaign working on global infant health initiatives. We urge you to support them as well.

Direct Relief: Direct Relief delivers medicines and medical supplies to local healthcare facilities in resource-poor communities worldwide. By strengthening healthcare infrastructure at the local level, Direct Relief helps communities care for their most vulnerable people.

Care: The organization provide tools for sustainable change to the people most vulnerable to hunger, violence and disease in over 87 countries around the world to support over 900 poverty-fighting development and emergency projects.

Jhpiego: Jhpiego has worked to prevent the needless deaths of women and their families for over 40 years and in more than 155 countries. Jhpiego collaborates with health experts, governments and community leaders to provide high-quality health services and develops strategies to help countries care for themselves by training competent health workers, strengthening health systems and improving the delivery of care.

Project Concern International (PCI): PCI touches the lives of nearly 10 million people around the world every year, providing individuals and families with the tools they need to pull themselves out of poverty and lead healthier more productive lives. Through programs like Women Empowered, PCI addresses the root causes of poor nutrition and food insecurity, encourages better maternal and child health, and reduces the impact of poverty in the communities it serves.

Project Alive & Kicking (PAK): PAK is a foundation devoted to the expected baby with a mission to empower pregnant women by giving them the educational tools they need to feel proactive and informed during their pregnancies.

We at NICHQ feel honored to be part of this global community advancing the health of our most vulnerable populations. Learn more about all of these organizations through The Huffington Post Crowdrise website.
