Poor parents cannot afford life-saving treatment for their children.
In India, public hospitals don't have all the medicines or working equipment necessary to care for children with life-threatening conditions. Some parents cannot afford care in private hospitals, while the necessary treatment is not available in public hospitals. Imagine a parent having to choose between saving one child vs. feeding the other children. Ekam brings lasting change by reinforcing the public health system and saving children whose parents cannot afford treatment.
Saving more lives with the available resources
Babies and mothers will be saved by your donation sent to Ekam. Ekam provides trained nurses, arranges free physician services, subsidized hospitalization costs and connects Government funds and private donors like you with the child in need.
Since 2009, Ekam has saved 12,000 children and reached 1 million lives through medical care. Ekam's work at grassroots level in villages helps easy access to treatment- Infant mortality rate has decreased from 21 to 16 per 1,000 live births
Successful reduction of child mortality
Infant mortality rate (IMR) has decreased from 21 to 16 per 1,000 live births where Ekam operates in India, in the state of Tamil Nadu. We hope to spread this throughout the country and simulate the successful model elsewhere. IMR is 42 in India, compared to Tamil Nadu's current rate of 16. Ekam's success has been replicated in a total of 8 states in India, touching a million lives, covering 1200 villages, through 3000 doctors. Ekam has supported medical treatment for 12,000 children
