They're sobering statistics: daily, 18,000 children die from illnesses like diarrhoea, malaria, and pneumonia. Almost half of the complete expires prior to their first month. Add to the 800 moms who die every day from ailments such as post-partum haemorrhage and illnesses, high blood pressure during pregnancy and unsafe abortions.
Many of these deaths can be prevented through low-cost, easy, vaccine vial
frequently community-based solutions which enhance local health care, enhance access and aid to deal with health inequities for women, children and adolescents. Working together with its international partners, the Canadian Red Cross has made significant contributions to saving lives in remote, impoverished areas by enhancing local health systems.
Canadian Red Cross plans to deal with women's and children's health have especially proven critical in countries affected by conflict and catastrophe, where many kids and girls are cut off from essential health services. Initiatives have included community-based treatment for children with malaria, diarrhoea and pneumonia, wellness promotion, obstetric care through area hospitals Emergency Response Units, pre- and - post-natal maintenance, and sanitation upgrades.
Cases of where Canadian Red Cross efforts have made a difference:
● Kenya: Within time, a 45 percent increase in infants exclusively breastfed for six months.
● Honduras: Urging men to take a larger role in preventing maternal and child mortality.
● Mali: Growing number of newborns who received a post-natal care visit by 19 percent.

● Syria: Supporting
five nutrition centres to treat malnutrition in children.
All these have a metal lid, with rubber at the centre where the needle goes into draw the liquid vaccination out. It just seems a shame to throw so many cool little bottles off, but they are not recyclable.
I would be interested in carrying these off anybody's hands to use for crafts. I didn't even think about asking my vet for theirs but today I'm likely to.
I use similar bottles for clay jobs. I get them from my vets office. She's careful that which she gives me. I take them home and clean them up. They decorate them with polymer clay and donate them for bottles of hope. I set my own spin on it and contribute some straight back to the vet for those who loose their pets. Vet and staff love it. Make good keep sake bottles for babies first tooth or a lock of hairloss. Stores easily and keeps them secure.
