Studies show that 59% of Indian women are anaemic. The social systems in India leave women with a lower quality of life compared to men, especially for those women from disadvantaged backgrounds. These women struggle through life with housework, manual labour and looking after their children.
Due to poverty, they always neglect their health while prioritising other family members. During pregnancy anaemia, exhaustion and fatigue can put the mother’s and baby’s life at risk.
The projects we supported have helped these mothers and their children gain improved health and maternal life.
