Channels of Hope: Maternal Newborn and Child Health

Friday, May 17, 2013

Channels of Hope for Maternal Newborn and Child Health is a programme methodology that catalyses faith communities and individuals to act on their God-given responsibility to honour, uphold and restore the dignity and value of every human being, to help ensure that even the most vulnerable experience fullness of life. Once catalysed, congregations work with World Vision to meaningfully engage with sustainable, community-based maternal, newborn and c hild health interventions and advocacy.

This carefully designed programme relies on scripture-based guiding principles, interactive activities, and scientific information and messages. These help actively deconstruct religious and social barriers to health and equitable gender relations and equip faith communities to respond compassionately and practically to the serious MNCH issues in their midst – both inside and outside their congregations.
