Thank you for sending vaccines for me.

Dear Friends of Seva Mandir,

 

Thank you for helping us to provide vaccines to the children from deprived communities. It is because of your support, we are able to organize monthly immunization camp in dozens villages of villages in southern Rajasthan, which is one of the poorest areas in the world.

 Due to unavailability of basic health facilities, vast numbers of children in this area either receive no immunization or fail to complete the full course of inoculations to protect them from deadly diseases.

 A 2003 study carried out by Seva Mandir with researchers from the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found that the rate of full immunization in this area was as low as 2.66%. A more recent study shows that this has risen to 38.3% in areas where Seva Mandir has been running its camps – still much too low, but a significant rise which represents children’s lives saved.

We need your help to continue offering these life-saving vaccinations to small children in these villages. Our health programme trains nurses to give the injections and oral vaccines, and takes them to and from the remote villages they serve. We also train village women to offer advice and care to mothers of children between the ages of 0 and 5.

We couldn’t do this without your help.

With your support last year we have reached to 5101 children, through our immunization camps in 91 hamlets in southern Rajasthan. 6805 pregnant women were also assisted during their most beautiful yet difficult time of delivery through our birth attendants (trained local midwives). We are able to make this progress only because of the support from YOU.

We request you to extend your support during the week of April 3rd to 7th, in which Global Giving will be matching donations in Little by Little Matching Champaign . There will also be a 200% match for new recurring donations started during this week!

We hope to continue our work with your trust. To make a donation, please click the link    https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/provide-immunization-india/

Best Wishes,

Atul Lekhra and Team Seva Mandir
