Child-Help wants to improve the quality of children with spina bifida and hydrocephalus in developing countries by timely detection and providing lifelong care, so they can grow up to become full citizens. To achieve this we work with local partners in the South and build on existing possibilities and initiatives from parents and local care givers.
Child-Help helps to prevent spina bifida through food fortification and supplements with folic acid.
Child-Help creates awareness in the Global North on the situation of children and adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus in the Global South. Child-Help is building with its partners a center of expertise on the care for children and adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus in the Global South.
