The Children’s Prize Innovation Competition Looks Back at Previous Year
Bring down the child mortality rate Children are the leaders of the future, and making sure they can survive long enough to make it to adulthood is a responsibility we must take on. Everyday children don’t make it to the age of 5 for purposes that are preventable. On average, 16,000 children die a day! This shouldn’t be happening which is the exact reason that the Children’s Prize Foundation has created an innovation competition – to find ways ensuring more children will live so that the child mortality rate is greatly reduced. Can you believe that the amount of children dying each day is equal to 11 deaths every minute? It’s an awful thought to have, but it’s happening. With this information we should be doing everything we can to stop such a horrific epidemic from occurring – especially when many of those deaths occur from treatable situations.
