CHEERing (Center for Health Equity, Education and Research International Group)
Where is it?
What will I be doing?
Working with refugee families, especially women and children, weighing and measuring their babies, counseling on infant feeding/breastfeeding; nutrition, and other basic health needs. Those with specialist skills would help with training in their field of specialty.
What impact would I have?
Breastfeeding saves lives. If women breastfeed exclusively for 6 months as recommended they and their babies will have better short and long term health. Breastfeeding promotion and help with basic reproductive health issues is one thing that can make a huge difference during this crisis.
Who will I be working with?
A small team of lactation and nutrition specialists and peer counselors with many years of experience running large projects in breastfeeding, public health, and evidence based care.
