Challenge

A highly tribal area, Simdega, Jharkhand, is the most impoverished region of India and has one of the highest maternal/infant mortality rates in the country. According to our founder, Caroline Boudreaux, "By offering a safe environment to these abandoned and destitute mothers, we improve the maternal and infant mortality rate and care for those who are not cared for by others. It is a powerful way to make a significant difference.”

Solution

Providing pre-natal care, hospital births, formula, and immunizations ensures healthy mothers and children.

Long-Term Impact

Decreasing maternal and infant mortality rates are two of the eight millinium goals. A child that is born healthy tends to stay healthy and a child that is born sick tends to stay sick. Securing their future is easy if you start at the beginning.
