Maternal and Child Health - Mother's Support Groups

Because many of the diseases that plague the developing world are preventable, World Hope International regularly reinforces the basics of sanitation and hygiene when working with a community. Key prevention techniques like hand washing, cleaning of utensils and positioning of sanitation facilities in relation to water sources are emphasized. In addition, World Hope International has partnered with UNICEF to form Mother’s Support Groups in villages across Sierra Leone. These groups promote and educate mothers on child nutrition, exclusive breastfeeding, infant and child care, and disease care and prevention.
