Summary

SevaChild is raising money to provide life-saving nutrients to 10,000 expectant mothers in one of the poorest areas of India. With every dollar you give, you will literally protect a pregnant woman from a range of childbirth complications, including preterm labor, poor fetal growth, low birth rates, and even death. The supplement is formulated specifically for expectant mothers and has a strong track record of improving maternal health and childbirth outcomes.

Challenge

In 2017, just over 800,000 newborns in India died, by far the most in the world. Many of those babies perished due to the poor health of their mothers. 42 percent of Indian mothers are underweight. As many as 90 percent of Indian adolescent girls are anemic, and anemia is a major reason why so many Indian mothers give birth to underweight children. This project will reach 10,000 young women who are at risk of anemia and other health conditions that can impact their pregnancies.

Solution

The supplements SevaChild will provide are specifically formulated for women of child-bearing age. They are high in iron and other vitamins and minerals that young women need to give birth to healthy babies. SevaChild will identify the young women most at risk, educate them on the importance of good nutrition and other factors affecting childbirth, and make sure they receive regular supplements to increase the likelihood that they will give birth to healthy infants.

Long-Term Impact

This project will target 10,000 Indian women of child-bearing age who will receive iron-rich supplements to help them stay healthy and strong throughout the course of their pregnancies. We are hopeful that maternal and child mortality rates among these women will decline as a result of this project. We also anticipate that both mothers and their children will be healthier and that their overall well-being will be enhanced.
