|Help Fight Child Mortality And Save Lives|
In the Sub-Saharan Africa, almost half of children under five are vitamin A deficient and are more likely to die before age five.
Due to malnutrition, these kids have weakened immune systems, leaving them vulnerable to illnesses such as diarrhea, measles, and even permanent blindness. In fact, vitamin A deficiency is the leading cause of preventable blindness in children.
It's crucial that children build strong immune systems against these illnesses so that they can lead long and healthy lives. Thankfully, just one capsule can provide a child with enough vitamin A to keep her healthy for six months.
For today's Daily Action, help fight child malnutrition and save lives by finding out the facts — and then talking this up over the holidays to let others know how they can make a difference.
