Her first day of life should not be her last.

The most dangerous day for babies in poverty zones is the first day of life. And as they grow, the threats mount.

Pneumonia kills them. Or, diarrhea, parasites, lung problems or malnutrition. They die because there's no trained midwife or nurse. They die because there's no emergency care.

But they don't have to die. Let Franklin Guerrero with Project HOPE show you in this video how your support sends four kinds of lifesaving help. So these precious babies can live.

This is an all-out campaign that will use every capability Project HOPE has. So innocent babies born in poverty zones can grow up healthy and strong.

Your gift will DOUBLE in impact with matching funds to drive #SaveNewbornsNow forward, providing medical treatment, training, medicine and more. To save the lives of moms and babies at risk now.


You can help us:
  • Save 4,000 babies living in poverty zones
  • Raise $100,000 in critical funds
  • Make this lifesaving difference by Mother's Day, May 14th.

This Valentine's Day and beyond, we're thinking about the love we express for one another. This is how to show your love for hurting people. Join #SaveNewbornsNow, and save these precious lives.

Here's what we do:

Care in Pregnancy

The risk begins here. Moms are weakened from malnourishment and struggle with illness from lack of medical attention. A healthy pregnancy? It's almost impossible. But you can change that.

Your Gift Provides:

  • High-risk Pregnancy Screenings
  • Prenatal Care
  • Midwife Training

Care in Birth

No trained midwife. No nurse. No medicine. Not even a birthing center. That's the situation for moms in poverty zones when they're giving birth. Their lives and their newborns are in grave danger. It doesn't have to be that way.

Your Gift Provides Training for:

  • Skilled Birth Attendants
  • Proper Birthing Environments
  • Kangaroo Mother Care

Care in 24 Hours

Within 24 hours, babies in poverty zones are at risk. Low birth weight from malnutrition weakens them, while lack of sanitation and poor hygiene leaves them vulnerable to infection and parasites. But you can help protect these precious newborns.

Your Gift Provides Training and Supplies for:

  • Helping Babies Breathe
  • Emergency Care
  • Nutrition

Care at 3 Months

Babies at 3 months face a range of threats as they grow up in poverty. One of the deadliest is actually diarrhea. It’s always lurking. And it can kill a child in days. But not if you take action.

Your Gift Provides Training and Supplies for:

  • Routine Checkups
  • Trained Community Health Workers
  • Child Health Care Education


Care at 12 Months

Pneumonia, malnutrition, infections and more continue to attack babies in poverty zones. Without care, these simple, childhood illnesses — all easily preventable — turn deadly. That’s why we need you.

Your Gift Provides:

  • Vaccinations
  • Medical Supplies
  • Improved Health Care Facilities

Please Help Now

In the first 24 hours and every day after, babies in poverty zones are in danger from infections, pneumonia, diarrhea, malnutrition and more.

But your gift will save lives by sending treatment, training, medicine and supplies straight to where they’re needed. Please join #SaveNewbornsNow with your most generous and compassionate gift.
