Our Story

Immediately after the war in Kosovo, in 2000, the infant mortality rate was 29 deaths per 1000 births, one of the highest in Europe. Action for Mothers and Children, together with its partners, donors, and friends has been at the forefront of the battle to bring this number down for the last ten years to about 11 per 1,000 births as of today. The battle has not ended yet! Around “Action for Mothers and Children” many supporters gathered to make their dream true and founded initially the “Foundation for Healthy Mothers and Babies” in 2009, under the initiative of Dr. James Strickler. Influential individuals from health, business, culture and economic sectors from Kosovo, US, and Diaspora (including among others Ardiana Bunjaku, Jehona Gjurgjeala, Rexhep Hoxha, Richard Lukaj, Bekim Ahmetaj, Ilirjana Bajraktari, George Little, Philip Sigwart, Ilir Hoxha and recently princess to be Elia Zaharia) joined the efforts to support the cause and grew the foundation into today’s “Action for Mothers and Children” since 2013. Our simple goal is to save the lives of children and mothers in Kosovo.
