BENEFITING: The PRASAD Project, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2015
PRASAD supports the people of India from birth through all of the major milestones and challenges of their lives. We provide prenatal care, nutrition for children and nursing moms, eye care, minor surgery, preventative care, HIV/AIDS support, and even psychiatry. We work in partnership with the people of the Tansa Valley to help them live the best life possible for them. And we need your support so that we can continue to support them.
PRASAD has a long relationship with the tribal people of the Tansa Valley, helping them achieve self sustainability through education, medical care and women’s Self-Help Groups. In India, more than 66% of rural populations have no access to medical care. Lack of access to preventive medical care correlates to a 73% greater incidence of dying from an infectious disease that could have been thwarted. This CrowdRise campaign will support PRASAD medical services in India.
