Disease – World Vision – Cause of the Month May 2013

0

World VisionMay cause of the month is Disease – AIDS and malaria in Africa, child vaccinations in Texas. Each is a health issue, and a need to be met. Many organizations are working to be instruments of God by providing needed medical and dental care, life-saving vaccinations, and even simple things that save lives like mosquito nets. Kosmos® desires to provide needed dollars for those who meet health needs.

The recipient is World Vision – World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. Working in nearly 100 countries around the world, World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

World Vision centers their health strategy on mothers and young children, with an emphasis on tackling infectious diseases — the main cause of maternal and child mortality. This strategy is in alignment with World Vision’s goal to help meet the health-related U.N. Millennium Development Goals to reduce deaths of children under 5 years of age; reduce maternal deaths; and combat HIV and AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.
