Medicine for a Child

Give a child vital healthcare and medicine so they can grow up healthy and strong.

“ I’m very happy in my job and I think we are helping a lot of people and what I love about it is it’s about the children. It’s always nice to meet healthy ones and also help the ones that are in need.” - Fatima, midwife for our local partner in Gaza.

There can be nothing worse for a parent than to watch their child fall ill and be powerless to help them. For many families around the world this is their reality as access to affordable medical treatment is out of reach.

This gift helps children receive the vital medication and health care they need to grow up healthy and strong. It also allows them to access specialist health services for conditions such as anaemia and malnutrition and psychosocial support for children suffering from trauma.
