The crisis of human displacement due to war, environmental emergencies, and natural disasters have become far more frequent in the past few decades. The burden of these catastrophes is not only monetary, it also carries a heavy human cost.
The health crisis brought about by the devastation increases the morbidity and mortality rate exponentially. When access to food supplies and safe water are scarce the most vulnerable, newborns, infants, and young children are at greatest risk. Free donations of commercially manufactured Infant Milk (CMIM) and an unsafe water supply, can lead to disaster, and death. Education about breastfeeding, and safe preparation of CMIM is needed for both volunteers, and health care professionals.
Breastfeeding and breastmilk provide critical nutrients and immune protection. It is a lifesaving practice in emergency situations.
In the spirit of the holiday season, we would like to offer students who enroll into our courses during the period of the 16th of December 2016 to the 31st of December 2016, an additional one month access time. The additional time will be added to your profile automatically.
