Perinatal Health in Haiti

Perinatal health is profound in changing a child’s life for good or for bad. That is why LiveBeyond has chosen perinatal health to be one of our main focuses. We know that implementing key elements like proper healthcare and nutrition can begin to change a child’s life before they are even born.

Together, we can change the world one life at a time!

 According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018 there were 5.3 million deaths in children under the age of five. Half of those deaths occurred in the first month of a child’s life. It is also mentioned that one of the leading causes of death in children under five is preterm birth complications. While these statistics are devastating to read, it makes it abundantly clear how important perinatal health is for the trajectory of a child’s life. 

The LiveBeyond maternal health program strives to enhance perinatal health. That is why we seek to enroll as many pregnant women in the Thomazeau community as possible. This program is sustaining and saving lives! Exciting things are happening here in Thomazeau, Haiti. We invite you to be a part of this exciting and lifesaving work.

Give Hope Today

A sponsorship of just $40 a month allows a mother & infant to: 

  • Enroll in the maternal health program. 
  • Receive proper nutrition, including vitamins & food. 
  • Have a weekly health check up. 
  • Receive education on the importance of maternal & perinatal health. 
  • Obtain proper healthcare.

It is a blessing and truly amazing to be a part of the Lord’s wonderful work. We will continue to change the world one life at a time by providing exceptional healthcare to improve the perinatal health here in Thomazeau.
