Happiness doubles when a new soul enters your lives, and with that responsibilities too. The first and foremost of them is the need to ensure your newborn’s health is all well. That includes everything; right from immunisation to food allergies to developmental issues.

Well, it all starts here ...! If the mother is healthy, the baby is. Many of us are aware of the fact that maternal morbidity and mortality are still considerably high in developing and under-developed countries. Lack of preconception care leads to most of these deaths. Preconception care including education, health promotion, screening and awareness among women of reproductive age would reduce the risk factors that might affect future pregnancies.
And it doesn’t stop with that. Care during the course of gestation and postnatal care right from advocating the importance of breast feeding to managing the psychological high-lows of postpartum. We advocate the importance of maternal health through awareness workshops and seminars crafted for young women and their family. We also help set up mobile health screening labs to reach out to remote localities.
Adolescents have significant needs for health services, due to their rapidly evolving physical, intellectual and emotional development. Understanding and supporting them during this important phase of their life is significant to their future.
Especially, adolescent girls. They are sooner or later the future mothers. We support initiatives like seminars and campaigns, creating awareness about the various aspects of the crucial stages in a woman’s life. Awareness on personal hygiene, cleanliness and effects of malnutrition are reiterated through targeted workshops for girls.
Healthy and balanced nutrition is important for everyone. It is the foundation for development. And malnutrition in all its forms amounts to an intolerable impediment to the fulfillment of human potential.
Micronutrient deficiencies being the risk factor for many diseases can contribute to high rates of morbidity and can have detrimental effects on human health. We support projects that are aimed towards this objective.
