In commemoration of Mother’s Day, Save the Children is publishing its 15th annual State of the World’s Mothers report. The focus is on millions of women and children living in fragile communities beset by conflict and natural disasters, and their everyday struggle to survive. More than 60 million women and children are in need of humanitarian assistance this year. Over half of maternal and child deaths worldwide occur in crisis-affected places; still the majority of these deaths are preventable. In this report, Save the Children examines the causes of maternal and child deaths in crisis settings, and suggests urgent actions needed to support mothers who are raising the world’s future generations under some of the most difficult and horrific circumstances imaginable.
