They're sobering statistics: daily, 18,000 children die from ailments such as diarrhoea, malaria, and pneumonia. Nearly half of that total dies prior to their first month. Add to this 800 mothers who die daily from conditions including post-partum haemorrhage and infections, higher blood pressure during pregnancy and unsafe abortions. Over half of these maternal and child deaths occur in countries affected by conflict, disasters and fragility.
Many of these deaths can be avoided through cheap, easy, frequently community-based solutions which improve local health care, enhance access and aid to address health inequities for women, children and teens. Working together with its global partners, vaccine bottle the Canadian Red Cross has made significant contributions to saving lives in remote, impoverished areas by enhancing local health systems.
Canadian Red Cross programs to deal with women's and children's health have particularly proven critical in states affected by conflict and disaster, where lots of children and women are cut off from essential health services. Initiatives have included community-based treatment for children with malaria, diarrhoea and pneumonia, health promotion, obstetric care through area hospitals Emergency Response Units, pre- and post-natal maintenance, and sanitation updates.

These include a metal lid, with rubber at the center where the needle goes into draw the liquid vaccination out. It just seems a shame to throw so many cool little bottles away, but they're not recyclable.
I would be interested in carrying these off anyone's hands to use for crafts. I didn't even consider asking my vet to get theirs but now I am likely to.
I use similar bottles for clay jobs. I get them from my vets office. She's careful that which she gives me. I take them home and clean them up. I decorate them with polymer clay and give them for bottles of hope. I put my own spin on it and donate a few back to the vet for those that loose their pets. Vet and staff love it. Make good keep sake bottles for babies first tooth or a lock of hair. Stores easily and keeps them protected.
