Stop pneumonia deaths

Will you give the simple antibiotics that saves children’s lives? 

You’re needed to save a child’s life with simple antibiotics

Your donation can make sure a child like Jamillah gets the medicine she needs to save her from deadly pneumonia, before she’s too tired to breathe.


Did you know that pneumonia kills more children under five than any other infectious disease – more than malaria, diarrhoea and measles combined. 

You might be shocked to know that treatment with antibiotics costs less than fifty cents! Yet almost a million children die each year from pneumonia.

Even worse, pneumonia hits children the hardest, especially little ones who are malnourished or whose immune systems have not fully developed. 

Children too weak to fight for breath against the fluid in their lungs… like baby Jamillah pictured here in her mother’s arms. The sound of her breathing is like listening to someone underwater. She isn’t getting enough oxygen to her blood or brain, so she falls in and out of consciousness. And her terrified mum knows that without treatment, baby Jamillah will die.

Today, you can stop the struggle for air. Today you’re needed to give the simple 3-5 day course of antibiotics that saves children’s lives!
