We work relentlessly to ensure that children grow up healthy and enjoy a happy childhood. Even today, 11.2 lakh children in India die before their fifth birthday. Every 25 seconds, a child under five years of age dies mostly due to preventable causes such as infections and malnutrition.
It’s this utterly sad situation which firms our resolve to provide robust health and nutrition benefits to children and save lives. Almost 50% of our work for children caters to the Health & Nutrition needs of children. In different states of India, we’re passionately working to improve the health and nutrition status of newborns, mothers, and expecting women with special focus on those coming from the most disadvantaged communities.
Following are the areas we work in:
• Child Survival
• Newborn Health
• Maternal Health
• Health and Nutrition of Children Affected by Emergencies and Natural Disaster
• Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
