Melinda raised 2.6 billion dollars around the issue of contraception for women, and Bill provided vaccines for children in Africa to decrease the number of deaths caused by diseases. Their increased generosity and their Foundation is changing the world and uplifting nutrition, survival and literacy so that countries can be smarter.
