Nearly 2 million children in India die every year from easily preventable diseases. Each one leaves a heartbroken family .Which of these children have a right to survive? EVERYONE. It’s shameful and unjustifiable that in 2009 more than 9 million children will die before they reach their fifth birthday — over 20% of them in India.

India is booming, but the effects of its 9% GDP growth are not reaching its poor — and our children are suffering the consequences.

Unless we act urgently, children will continue to die for many years to come, though the world has the knowledge and resources to save them.
Save the Children recently launched its a new drive EVERY ONE which aims at working across the world to make a big change happen faster. We’re calling for your support to help India make the 46% annual reduction in the deaths of children to meet Millenium Development Goal 4 by 2015.

A 5 % improvement in child mortality rates can raise economic growth by around 1% per year over the following decade.
