They're sobering statistics: each day, 18,000 children die from ailments such as diarrhoea, malaria, and pneumonia. Almost half of that total dies prior to their first month. Add to the 800 moms who die daily from conditions such as post-partum haemorrhage and illnesses, higher blood pressure during pregnancy and unsafe abortions. More than half of those maternal and child deaths occur in countries affected by conflict, disasters and fragility.
Many of these deaths can be avoided through cheap, easy, often community-based solutions which enhance local health care, enhance access and help to address health inequities for women, children and teens. Working with its global partners, vaccine vial
the Canadian Red Cross has made considerable contributions to saving lives in remote, impoverished areas by improving local health programs.
Canadian Red Cross plans to deal with women's and children's health have especially demonstrated critical in states affected by conflict and disaster, where many kids and girls are cut off from essential health services. Initiatives have included community-based treatment for children with malaria, diarrhoea and pneumonia, wellness promotion, obstetric care
through field hospitals Emergency Response Units, pre- and post-natal maintenance, and sanitation upgrades.
● Kenya: Over time, a 45 per cent increase in infants exclusively breastfed for six months.
● Honduras: Urging men to take a greater role in preventing child and maternal mortality.
● Mali: Increasing number of teens who obtained a post-natal care visit by 19 percent.
● Pakistan: providing thousands of messages encouraging girls to receive antenatal care.
● Philippines: Assisting in the delivery of over 400 babies in the month after Typhoon Haiyan.
● Syria: Supporting five nourishment centers to deal with malnutrition in children.
These include a metal lid, with rubber at the centre where the needle goes in to draw the liquid vaccination out. It just seems a shame to throw so many cool little bottles off, but they are not recyclable.
I'd be interested in carrying these off anybody's hands to use for crafts. I didn't even think about asking my vet to get theirs but today I am likely to.
I use comparable bottles for clay projects. I get them from my vets office. She is careful that which she gives me. I take them home and wash them up. I decorate them with polymer clay and then give them for bottles of hope. I put my own spin on it and contribute a few straight back to the vet for people who loose their pets. Vet and employees love it. Stores easily and keeps them protected.
