"...four million newborns worldwide die each year in their first month of life...
Many... infants could be saved with simple,inexpensive items,like sterile blades to
cut umbilical cords,antibiotics for pneumonia and knit caps to keep them warm,
[Save the Children] said in State of the World's Mothers 2006.... Ninety-nine
percent of newborn deaths are in developing countries,where such items are
often not widely available.
The New York Times, May 9, 2006


Many of these deaths could easily be prevented with cheap interventions,such as knit caps to keep newborns warm...
Associated Press, May 9, 2006


Thanks to all that helped us meet our goal for the Knit One, Save One campaign.

We sent OVER 900 CAPS!

Several students and teachers from KCD went to Washington, DC to meet with legislators and spread the word about the continued need for low-cost interventions to save newborn lives
