Let's put a stop to this now! Pledge and help save a life today.

 
Lifebuoy will donate money for every single pledge we all make. Please read press statement below...
My little cousin, Daniel was sick, very sick, stooling uncontrollably – like 6 to 8 times a day. It was terrible watching him go through that everyday. He got only about 2 hours of sleep everyday.  We took him to the hospital, ‘diarrhoea’ they said, just a couple of treatments and he will be fine but nothing seemed to be working. He continued crying almost all the time. Then he stopped eating, in fact, he cried at the sight of food. I think he was scared of eating. 
Then the worse came, his skin became dry; he looked like he had kwashiorkor, like he was mal-nourished, bulgy eyes and visible ribs. I couldn’t recognise him again. He died before my eyes. Diarrhoea snuffed the life out of him! Then I found out that Diarrhoea claims the lives of 5 MILLION CHILDREN in Nigeria every year. This is a disease that can be prevented. I wish we did but we didn’t. But you can. Let’s save our children
Please continue...



Lifebuoy will be making a donation to the cause of defeating Diarrhoea in Nigeria, all you have to do is take a pledge, join your voice to millions of others that want to put a stop to this plague.

Just click www.lifebuoypledge.com/pledge and tell as many friends as possible, you would have saved a life. You can also pledge by texting the word DEFEAT to 20050 or go to the FACEBOOK page

Pledge and help save a life today.
Thank you.
On behalf of Nigerian mothers.

    A truly commendable project. I urge us all to try and pledge on Facebook. You are not pledging a kobo,so don`t be scared *wink*. Pls just spread the word on FB, its quite easy to do. BTW i dont work for them, and i dont think i have heard of them till now, however their project is laudable and we shld all try and encourage them.
