Holistic Health For All Infants Worldwide
"Partnering with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and United Way to launch Covid-19 Young Leaders Fund, the organisers said on Friday that the fund is supported by Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Emma Watson, among others."
Every Infant Matters partners with Shri Ram College of Commerce Alumni Association to carry out relief and distribution of essential items to low paid hospital workers who are in the frontlines in the fight against Covid-19.
Dr. Girish Ahuja, President, and Mr. Avinash Gupta, Secretary of the SRCC Alumni Association are deeply concerned with the plight of frontline health workers.
Mr. Avinash Gupta says: “Our Association wants to help those who are serving patients, but do not have the resources to buy their own personal protection kits, face shields and helmets. Nor can they buy unlimited supply of sanitisers and gloves and N-95 masks. We are honoured that we are able to help people like ambulance drivers, sanitary workers, nurses and their assistants, kitchen staff, ward boys and technicians, and are able to supply them with essential items for their protection against the deadly virus. ”
SRCC Alumni Association has funded the purchase of hundred PPE kits, 700 large bottles of hand sanitisers, and 50 face shields and 100 protectove goggles, among other items. Every Infant Matters is distributing these in both government and private hospitals of Delhi.
We are supporting police personnel by distributing 200 face shields and 100 sanitisers in Noida.
The exodus has started. Men women children, hungry and thirsty and tired and exhausted, are on long marches on foot, trying to reach their native villages. Most are labourers or other daily wagers who have lost their jobs. Chaotic scenes everywhere. Every Infant Matters provides food and grocery kits to 950 people
Thousands have lost jobs in this pandemic. There is no food, no water no accommodation, no transport.
"I need funds urgently to provide these people with food and water, " says Dr Radhika Batra.

Every Infant Matters is distributing masks and hand sanitisers to homeless people, especially children, who are malnourished and vulnerable. They live in unhygienic conditions and survive on meagre scraps of food. Even though the disease progression in children is mild, they may pass on the virus to others who fall in the high risk category. This small step taken in the right direction may help flatten the curve. We have partnered with a local NGO called Donate a Meal, this has shelters, free meals and distribution drives for homeless people. A pharmaceutical supplier is arranging these commodities for us at highly subsidised rates.
Every Infant Matters is distributing masks and hand sanitisers to women and children living in remote areas of the North East.

"Childhood Health begins in the womb itself" says Dr Radhika Batra. "14.6 per cent of all babies born globally are of low birthweight. They are more likely to die during their first month of life. Those who survive face lifelong consequences including a higher risk of stunted growth, lower IQ, and adult-onset chronic conditions such as obesity and diabetes. To grow a healthy baby, mothers need good nutrition, rest, adequate antenatal care, and a clean environment. We provide mothers with the essential prenatal vitamins to support the growth and development of the baby in the womb"
