Action for Mothers and Children and the March of Dimes Foundation
Prishtina, 14 December 2015 –
We take pride in our partnership with March of Dimes, a nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies with the mission of preventing birth defects, prematurity and infant mortality in the U.S. and around the world. In addition to supporting research aimed at helping more women have healthy pregnancies and healthy, full-term babies, March of Dimes works to promote the overall health of women before and during pregnancy through education and advocacy.
Action for Mothers and Children (AMC) follows March of Dimes mission example and the two organizations mark their second year of close cooperation in the usage of evidence-based health education materials for improving maternal and child health. “Action for Mothers and Children is one of those partners with whom we enjoy working. It is exciting to see this organization growing and making an enormous impact in health of mothers and babies in Kosovo,” says Dr. Salimah Walani, Director of Global Health Programs. In September this year, Action for Mothers and Children visited March of Dimes in the U.S. and the leaders of both organizations exchanged ideas for continued cooperation towards improving maternal and child health in Kosovo.
