The project will provide much needed healthcare for 200 poor pregnant women in Uttar Pradesh to enable them to deliver healthy babies under medical supervision. By contributing as little as $10, you can become a part of a poor woman's birth story.
In India every 8 minute a woman dies during pregnancy & childbirth.Sadly these deaths are largely preventable as are mainly due to poor access to health services.There is lack of hospitals to provide pregnancy care & safe delivery services at affordable price.So pregnant women from poor communities are deprived of basic tests, medicine &nutrition, putting their &their baby lives at risk. HLFPPT is working towards addressing this problem through its network of Hospitals called Merrygold Hospitals
HLFPPT has partnered with 300 hospitals to provide safe pregnancy and delivery facilities to poor women. This includes medical checkups, counseling support, medicines, tests, nutritional supplements, delivery care etc. More than 500,000 women have availed services through HLFPPT hospitals.
This project will help prevent needless deaths of mothers by ensuring that at least 500 poor pregnant women are blessed with healthy babies. Given the key role that mothers play in the health of their families, the program will also contribute towards improving the overall quality of healthcare in the state-starting with one mother-baby pair at a time.
We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
