Our goal at Carry Them is to be a beacon of hope for infants facing severe malnutrition by providing essential formula support. With a deep understanding of the critical role nutrition plays in a child’s development, we seek to ensure that these vulnerable infants receive the nourishment they need to grow healthy and strong.

cross-cultural education

 Carry Them Ministries is dedicated to bridging cultural gaps and providing life-saving education to the people of Nigeria. By hosting events and classes in various settings like hospitals, churches, and local villages, Carry Them can share successful Western birthing practices, aiming to raise awareness and improve maternal and infant health outcomes worldwide.

Advocacy

In the United States, 1 in 4900 women will pass away during childbirth. In Nigeria, that number is 1 in 22 women. Due to this maternal mortality crisis, many Nigerian babies will not survive past their 28th day of life. At Carry Them, we are committed to being a voice for the most vulnerable in Nigeria by focusing our efforts on advocating for these infants facing severe acute malnutrition and alarming rates of maternal mortality, 

Give the gift of hope.

For a donation of around $2 per day, you can save a life in need. Your generous support goes toward the costs associated with providing for the critical care needs of the infants and families we serve.

consider giving toward families in need.

Nigeria has the highest rate of multiples in the world; therefore, we often serve families of multiples: twins, triplets, and beyond. Consider teaming up with a friend or your small group and provide for the care of multiple babies.
