Save Ill Children
250 Rehydration Salts
Diarrheal diseases are a leading cause of early childhood mortality in developing countries. An estimated 2.2 million children die from dehydration due to diarrheal diseases every year. A simple solution of sugar, salt and water can prevent nearly 90% of child deaths from diarrhea. Oral Rehydration Salts are premade packets that, when mixed with water, can be the difference between life and death for an ill child.
This gift will provide 250 packets of Oral Rehydration Salts, which can be a life-saving therapy for Peruvian children with severe acute diarrhea.
