Folic Acid Awereness Week

08 January 2018

Happy and Healthy New Year!

We start 2018 with the World Folic Acid Awareness Week! Folic acid is key to reducing the risk of most neural tube defects. Still far too many women remain unaware of the need to take folic acid at the critical time BEFORE they get pregnant. Our partner IF Global, the International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, has done a great effort in prevention, awareness raising, and food fortification. Together with IF, Child-Help has provided thousands of folic acid tablets to women in need worldwide. Thank you IF, for your collaboration and continuous work to spread the word on folic acid!

How can you help?

Support Child-Help and give children with a birth defect in developing countries a fair start!
