Save Kids Trust India has been working hard in their communities and your support has been instrumental! Thank you! Our clinics have been busy and our pop-up street clinics and educational opportunities have reached hundreds this winter.

Anemia treatments and menstruation training are going very well. We are starting to see individual young women coming to the clinic, outside of educational training sessions, to seek our assistance. It is good sign that with good information at hand, women are getting more comfortable asking questions and seeking assistance with our health leaders.

We had two opportunities to catch up with families we helped in the past. Maryam introduced us to her new grandson and caught us up on the livelihood of her family we initially assisted in 2012. She has worked hard, and been very blessed, that the vocational assistance we provided then is still a primary income source today, The medical intervention her children needed made a positive difference in thier lives as well. Ira, who suffered from breast cancer in 2019, also came in to say hello and she is doing well!

Late this winter, we also took time to gather data and reflect on how we have helped women and families with vocational trainings. Maryam’s family was an early example, but we have also helped women with developing tailor services by providing sewing machines, and even setting up women with carts to sell seasonal goods in their communities. All of these efforts began as medical interventions but then, through additional support, have provided economic stability for the families.

Save Kids Trust’s mission is to help children and their families by caring for current medical needs and enhancing generational family health though education, nutritional health, and vocational support. It is a blessing to see examples of this every month!

Sincerely and with Thanks,

The Team of Save Kids Trust

One year ago we asked you to support Save Kids Trust (SKT) and to help us gain access to the GlobalGiving platform. You responded and we are so grateful for your help. We have found the resources and assistance provided by GlobalGiving to be so helpful for a small non-profit like ours, that we have set a goal of raising our entire annual operating budget in 2022 using the GlobalGiving platform. Those goals, and ways you can participate in them, are described in our new 2022 project, linked below.

Despite the unique challenges this year, Dr. Saini and SKT has kept all three clinics operating normally and have helped thousands of people.

Here are some notable stories from the last several months: An 8-year-old girl was able to get treatment for an infection that affected her hair growth. A young man who lives in a different state in India but learned about SKT from a friend, traveled to Jaipur to get a new artificial hand after his second hand became unusable. A sixty-year-old man needed help for hypertension but didn’t have money – SKT stepped in and he believes it saved his life. An 87-year-old widow woman, who registered with SKT seven years ago, came to the clinic with her original card to seek care. Dr. Saini and his team were proud to learn that she takes such good care of it. She said all her neighbors know where she keeps it in case they need to help her come to the clinic. 

These are merely samples of the daily activities at each of the three permanent clinics as well as the numerous street clinics that SKT operates. None of it is possible without your help. For a more in-depth look into the action, please go to the Stories section of our website, linked below. 

The fighting menstruation taboos clinics have been quite successful and have opened the door to many new opportunities to help young women.  Dr. Saini reports they have taught more than 1600 young women thus far this year and the lessons learned are helping him develop exciting new programs for 2022.

Your support during this year has allowed SKT to provide uninterrupted support to people whose lives have been completely disrupted by the pandemic – Thank you!

Proud of her SKT Registration!
