To save a child’s life with timely medical intervention and financial aid.
The National Health Profile, 2017 published by Central Bureau of Health Intelligence, has revealed that one in four of all rural households and one in five urban families incur debts to meet hospitalisation costs. These families are often forced to sell off their assets. Ekam Mumbai’s Surgery Support Programme Seeks to bring/ seeks at bringing together children from the disadvantaged sections of society and private healthcare providers together in order to provide the children with affordable but quality healthcare.
Each year India loses more than 1 million babies under the age of 1 year. More than 95% of these deaths can be prevented with access to good healthcare. It is therefore imperative to provide the poor with access to quality healthcare.
There is wide variation in the financial support provided by Ekam Mumbai which ranges from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 1,00,000 per case
We try to ensure that all children referred to Ekam Mumbai are provided with adequate medical attention and treated irrespective of their financial difficulties.
