Saving babies’ lives, mending relationships. Local communities and displaced people in Burkina Faso come together to reduce infant mortality.
AMCC has been supporting local interfaith partner ACCORD – a community maternal and child health program which began in 2018, adapting a care group model of women’s support groups that MCC had started using in Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia.
The project grew rapidly. It now covers 37 villages and reaches 17,003 participants in Burkina Faso, primarily through twice-monthly meetings of 330 mothers’ care groups.
