About Berachah

Berachah is a not-for-profit organization solely committed to the total well-being of the child. It was established to tackle the various causes of under-five mortality in our country and thus reduce the rates associated therein.

“Our nation’s children are our greatest asset and our most precious treasure”

Christopher Dodd

To engage in and promote those things that improve the total well-being of children, and to act against those things that diminish it
