Save The Children
As the world's leading independent child rights organization, Save the Children's mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives. One of the poorest countries in the world, Bangladesh, has succeeded in reducing preventable maternal and child death.
However, chronic hunger continues to be a persistent problem. Malnutrition is the underlying cause in one third of global child mortality, and has lifelong consequences for children who survive. Malnourished children are more likely to become ill and perform poorly in school.
Save the Children, along with its community partners, have been saving the lives of mothers and children in Bangladesh for more than three decades. Roger Mooking spent several days meeting the mothers and children who rely on the health and nutrition services of Save the Children's MaMoni Project in Bangladesh.Second Harvest Toronto Taste 2012
