I haven’t heard from my children
The first five years are a crucial period in the development of a child and this development directly affects the quality of adult life. Brain development is almost wholly completed by age 2 and malnutrition rates peak at around 24 months of age. This research suggests that it is crucial for Compassion to affect the lives of younger children during this important two-year window of development. Our Child Survival Program works — and pays big dividends as a child grows older.
