Mother & Baby - - WHAT’S ON -

DUR­ING Joy of Giv­ing Week #DaanUt­sav2018, four or­gan­i­sa­tions have come for­ward to sup­port the cause of treat­ing chil­dren suf­fer­ing from CHD. CHD, the most com­mon con­gen­i­tal anom­aly in new­born ba­bies, refers to the struc­tural heart de­fects dur­ing the birth of a child. Un­der this unique part­ner­ship, chil­dren from the Raigad dis­trict of Ma­ha­rash­tra will be screened for CHD and sup­ported for their med­i­cal surgeries. Surgeries would take place in Wock­hardt Hos­pi­tal, glob­ally renowned for their med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vice. Or­a­cle be­gan sup­port­ing heart surgeries for un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren suf­fer­ing from CHD through­out In­dia in the Spring of this year. Un­der the Project Lit­tle Hearts, Or­a­cle has taken a holis­tic ap­proach to sup­port surgeries with a ded­i­cated grant of USD 100,000, plus aware­ness-rais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to be planned over the course of the year. Un­der the same project, Ge­n­e­sis Foun­da­tion struck a unique part­ner­ship with Swades Foun­da­tion to treat the chil­dren suf­fer­ing from CHD in Raigad. These two or­gan­i­sa­tions both be­lieve in work­ing at and from the grass­roots level, which en­sures that the work does not end at pro­vid­ing mon­e­tary aid but reaches the ones who need it.
