Child Care & Baby Kit
Infants deserve the best…may there be no illness because of a lack of clean clothes!
The Baby Kit project had very humble beginnings. Startling revelations related to infant mortality and infant illness due to unhygenic infant clothes motivated members of Mahavir International Indore to start the Baby Kit Project way back in 2001. It was observed that women from rural and illiterate backgrounds were coming to the maternity hospital and wrapping their new born infants in tattered dirty clothes or their own "Odhnis".
So our zealous members took it upon themselves to help save the lives of these underprivileged infants by providing the government maternity hospitals with baby kits (containing sets of vests, nappies, caps, bed sheets and baby covering sheets). They enthusiastically went about collecting old newspapers and magazines from homes and used the sales proceeds to fund baby kits for new born infants.
This initiative then spread to Jaipur a few months later, where members of Jaipur Pink City Centre made it one of their self-sustaining projects. Thereafter the momentum picked up in other centres of Mahavir International in Rajasthan and gradually it spread pan India to become a flagship project to be adopted at the national level by all centres of Mahavir International.
Our Vira members visit the maternity hospitals at regular intervals and meet the doctors and nursing staff and ensure that our baby kits are distributed to all the needy mothers for their new born chid. Many a time nutritious food and fruits are also distributed to supplement the mother’s nutrition.
So far over three lakh infants have been benefitted by this effort and we hope to take this figure upto one million in a short span of time.
1 .It costs as little as Rs. 3000 to sponsor 50 baby Kits
2. All donations to the Baby Kit project get the 80G benefit under Income tax ( Through Mahavir International Foundation Trust ).
A small step will go a long way to make it a good world for your little ones!
