Protect a poor mother and her new born baby by sponsoring their post natal care for 3 months, INR 6850

Post natal care is critical for the well-being of both the mother and child. However it is not affordable for many mothers from families that are below the poverty line. Action for Development of Demos (ADD) is committed to provide the necessary post-natal healthcare and nutrition support for the first 3- months, which is by far the most critical period for both mother and the new born child

The Basics

During the first 3 months after delivery it is very important to provide the mothers with a balanced diet and for them to have regular medical checkups. ADD helps these mothers avail these facilities through their programme.

How It Works

• ADD refers to the list of people below the poverty line and selects mothers that are in dire need of financial support.
• They further get help from local ADD volunteers to identify other mothers based on their economic status and include them in the list.
• The financial and nutritional support includes coupons for the purchase of vegetables, milk and Proteinex powder. It also includes the cost of medication and the fee for Gynecologists, Pediatricians and Sevikas.
• These utilities are delivered to the women’s homes.

The Statistics

About 40 - 50 women and their children are part of ADD's post natal help programme every year.

She saw no hope
24 years old lady Minta Devi belongs to the most poor, backward and untouchable cast named Mushar. She leads a hard life of deprivation and utter poverty and she recently gave birth to a daughter on 18th Dec. 2009 whose proper nurture and nourishment was a great matter of worry for the poor lady. In fact she already had two sons who also cannot be discarded. Her husband, Vijay Manjhi is fond of drinking and practicing other narcotics. He didnt have even a little bit interest in any of the family matters. Under such critical situations, thinking of giving proper nurture and care to the newly born baby was perhaps a hard task for the struggling lady.
Fortunately ADD team learnt about her plight. We counselled her and registered her for our Mother & Child programme.
Now Minta Devi is extremely glad and is nurturing her baby princess with all required care and comforts. She heartily salutes the noble attitude of ADD for giving maternal help to all such poor little babies and their mothers and ADD too wishes her a good life.
