Why We Work

One million hungry children become blind every year due to Vitamin A deficiency. Blind forever. They are doomed to a life of darkness. Half of them die due to low immunity and recurrent infections. 250 million children worldwide suffer from Vitamin A deficiency and are at risk of losing their vision.


“We cannot provide nutritious food to everyone. But surely we can give the life-saving drops of vitamin A to malnourished children; to save them from the horror of permanent blindness, recurrent infections, and untimely deaths.”, says Dr. Radhika Batra, Co-founder, and President.
