Some of the cutest babies in the world

Look at their gorgeous faces. How can they not make your week? Did you know a toddler can smile up to 400 times a day? With so much love and support to bask in, we think they have the right idea!

We all need a little extra joy, so we're posting cute photos of babies enrolled in our Child Survival Interventions for us to appreciate.

Here's Christine, safe in her dad Edward's arms just hours after she was born.

“I feel amazingly blessed," Edward explains. "When we joined the Child Survival project it helped us so much by relieving some of the burdens in our family and helping our baby. Compassion has taken care of all the bills at the hospital. I was only left with the responsibility of taking care of home. I am so grateful to God for granting us the blessings of receiving all these blessings. The staff members have helped so much. I’m so grateful to God!"

"I love this baby, I have so much love for her," shares Mama Kate, reflecting on the birth of her precious daughter, Pamela Grace. "The project staff have been regularly visiting us and Pamela and I have also been walking over there to the church. It is such a wonderful feeling to have their support, especially as I’m a single mother."

For babies born into poverty, the first 1,000 days of life are critical to survival. These gorgeous babies with their adorable smiles are from some of the 25 countries where we’re working to change children’s lives for the better.  

Our Child Survival interventions keep mums safe during their pregnancy by providing pre-natal and post-natal care, including check-ups, vaccinations and the presence of a medical professional during childbirth. 

What’s more, our interventions programme helps babies reach their first birthday by ensuring precious children receive immunisations, vitamins, nutritional supplements and growth checks. 

Thanks to our Child Survival Interventions, you can partner with us as we enable little ones to not only survive, but thrive.
