A mother dies during childbirth in India every 8 minutes. More than 3 lakh babies die annually on the first day after birth.
Most of these deaths are preventable. Lack of access to preventive care information is a major cause of the high maternal and child mortality rates.
It is this information failure that we seek to eliminate.
But access to information is not enough.
It needs to be timed and targeted: timed to when the
information is most crucial and targeted directlyat those who need it the most.
Specific to the month of pregnancy and
age of the child. In her own dialect. And reinforced byadequate repetition.
mMitra will thus be a loyal friend, holding the woman’s hand and gently guiding her through pregnancy and infancy. You can read more about mMitra here.
Help us achieve our goal of providing mMitra service to every underprivileged mother in India.
Only by contributing Rs. 250 (less than $5), you can now sponsor the cost of enrolling one mother into the mMitra service.
This is a simple way to reach out and empower a mother to make better choices for herself and her child. Provide her with access to the right information at the right time. Information that is her right.Information that has the power to transform her and her child’s life.
