A poor child’s life is invariably under risk due to…
Malnutrition & poverty
Poor hygienic & sanitary conditions
Lack of access to quality health care and expensive life saving treatments…
The price the poor have to pay for quality health care…
" I am an ordinary woman from the rural-poor community, my new born baby was diagnosed with severe infection in the blood and lungs, having breathing difficulty needing ventilator support . Given the medical complications & the urgency to save my baby's life, I admitted him at a private hospital. My husband was the only bread winner with a meager income. Nevertheless, we borrowed money from neighbors' & financiers and exhausted all our resources completely. My baby was operated successfully and recovered too. But from being poor, we have now become poorer. Most part of the meager income we make, goes towards the debts and now we are not able to afford good education & further health care for our child....”

If this has reached you, then consider yourself as having the power to bless a very deserving child, perhaps ailing, and help the kid receive timely care at the hour of need .
Would you be one among the guardian angels these children are seeking?
Would you be willing to do the possible (Rs.221 per child) ….Not much more than a pizza dinner or a prepaid recharge. But used the right way, it could go far and make a significant effect in the life of a child… how many children can you save?
The children’s details, along with the respective sponsors will be made transparent in our websites (in a couple of weeks) - http:// disha.resolve.at , http:// www.ekamoneness.org .
