The 2015 Yangon Marathon

January 11, 2015

28 members of Community Partners International's (CPI) staff are running in the Yangon Marathon on January 11th 2015 to raise $10,000 for life-saving health services for moms and children in Myanmar. Meet the runners and DONATE on our Yangon Marathon page!

Our research shows that 1 in 7 children in eastern Myanmar dies before their 5th birthday. Most of these deaths can be prevented with low-cost, low-tech health interventions. The biggest killers of children in these communities are diarrhea, malaria and respiratory infection.

Please give generously. Together we can save lives and help Myanmar moms and babies thrive! With your help, CPI can support life-saving care when and where it matters most:

$75 trains and equips one birth attendant to care for moms and babies before during and after birth.
$175 supports 5 village health workers who help prevent deadly respiratory infections and diarrhea.
$500 provides testing and life-saving medication for 250 people with malaria.

Thank you for your support!
