Ebola Outbreak Update From Compassion

ebola-outbreak-compassion

With the recent outbreak of Ebola in West African countries, many sponsors have been asking if their children are safe.

First and foremost, no Compassion children or staff have been directly affected. Still, we are taking precautionary measures to protect our children and staff should the outbreak spread into the countries where we work. If your Compassion-sponsored child has been impacted we will contact you directly.

Health Facts: Impoverished Children at Higher Risk

Health-FactsThe recent outbreak of Ebola in West Africa has turned many conversations toward the state of health care in developing nations. Under-developed or non-existent health care systems often leave children at higher risk than others:

  • In 2010, malaria caused an estimated 655,000 deaths, mostly among African children.
  • 91 percent of all malaria deaths currently occur in Africa and most of these deaths are among children under five years of age.
  • Pneumonia is the leading cause of death in children worldwide.
  • Pneumonia kills an estimated 1.4 million children under the age of five every year – more than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
  • In 2010, there were 139,300 measles deaths globally – nearly 380 deaths every day or 15 deaths every hour – mostly children under the age of five.

Most of the diseases affecting impoverished children are preventable or treatable:

  • Pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics, but only 30 percent of children with pneumonia receive the antibiotics they need.
  • Measles vaccination resulted in a 74 percent drop in measles deaths between 2000 and 2010 worldwide.
  • Sleeping under a mosquito net is an effective method of preventing Malaria, but few impoverished families can afford to provide one for their children.

It’s a big, but solvable problem. You can make a significant impact on the life and health of one child.
