Save the Children – New Statistics

According to the nonprofit Save the Children, about 800 mothers and 18,000 children under five years of age die from preventable causes worldwide every day. The report “State of the World’s Mothers” has just been published by this organization. It also states that most infant deaths are concentrated in the most vulnerable and marginalized areas of the world, especially where there is armed conflict. The study indicates that more than 250 million children under five years of age live in countries affected by such conflict.
