Our goal
Reduction of neonatal mortality rate and infant mortality rate
The Challenge

Save One Child or Feed The Other

In India, the public hospitals don't have all the medicines or equipment to care for preterm babies. Private care is expensive. Some parents cannot afford care in private hospitals. Imagine a parent having to choose between saving one child vs. feeding the other children. Ekam's goal is that - No Child Should Be Denied Healthcare due to Finances.

Our Solution

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 grass roots level in villages caused early referral and easy access to treatment- Infant mortality rate has decreased from 21 to 16 per 1,000 births

Your Impact

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.Currently 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.
