is the idea that something so preciou
s as health might be viewed as a right.”
When we come across staggering facts such as 3 of 5 major causes of child death (pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria) are preventable, it stops us in our tracks. We all have children here at Business Connect, what if this was our child?
We know we could prevent these diseases simply by providing access to clean water. That’s why Global Goal 3 is important to us: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. Poor health still has a profound impact on the economic well being of individuals, communities and entire countries.
Still, 6.3 million children continue to die each year in their first year of life. That’s nearly 17,000 each and every day. Mark Shriver, President of Save the Children Action Network and an advocate on behalf of kids living in poverty, featured a blog today titled, “Together, We Can Ensure the Healthy Lives of Mothers and Babies Across the Globe.” He mentions also that not only are these diseases preventable and treatable, but, in addition, 800 women die every day due to complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
This is why we have an urgent need to expand our international distribution network to the poorest places of the world. We know we can help more families by not only providing easy access to clean and safe products that save lights, we can also help create a sustainable business for a mother or young person who needs the additional income for their family. We want to educate, empower and inspire more and more youth to take the step to stop the generational cycle of poverty.
