Children have a right to healthcare.
Terre des hommes helps hundreds of thousands of children and their mothers to benefit from their right to healthcare, food and hygiene in a sustainable manner and within their communities. Tdh advises and assists mothers of malnourished children, pregnant women and mothers of newborn infants. Tdh ensures they are cared for in paediatric wards when necessary and also encourages breastfeeding. Tdh transfers children who cannot be treated in their own country to European University hospitals and organises surgical procedures in developing countries. During humanitarian crises, Tdh ensures access to drinking water and sanitary facilities and also improves hygiene in the affected communities.
