Work and Achievements
Conceiving and having a baby, is one of the most beautiful, natural and joyful experiences of life. However, this reality can be extremely difficult, harsh, exacting and life threatening for many women living in poor, remote and deprived regions of India, caught up in the vicious circle of socio-economic inequality and poverty, without access to any basic health services, information or family support.
According to the United Nations (UN) and The Lancet Global Health Report released in November 2015, maternal deaths in India stood at 45,000 or 15% of such deaths across the world. Maternal Mortality Ration MMR was 174 per 100.00 live births.
Complications during pregnancy and childbirth are a leading cause of death and disability among women of reproductive age in India. A large number of deaths are preventable through safe deliveries and adequate maternal care. The type of care received at child birth is often critical for the health and survival of both infant and mother.
We are providing access to quality maternal and child health services to over fifty thousand women in the most backward and underserved areas of Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi. Our goal is to ensure that mothers and babies survive and remain healthy during pregnancy, childbirth, and early childhood.
Support Sukarya and help us reach more mother and children in poverty, hunger and need.
