The Woman and Child Mobile Health Clinics Project was established in 2012 in partnership with an NGO called Jagriti Bhalai Kendra Society in Amritsar.
A fundraising campaign was mounted to support the cause here in Australia by wise woman Helen Beeby who decided to do what she could to support the work of Dr Ram that she had personally observed when travelling in India.
The project has been running for four years now and benefits 11,000 women and 7,000 children through mobile health posts for mothers and babies in 30 poor and oppressed Dalit villages.
It is a rolling program of ante and post-natal care, nutrition, contraception, immunisation, support for HIV/AIDS patients, female empowerment and gender equality plus environmental, sanitary and health education.
Sadly, it does not receive funding from the Indian government and totally relies on the generosity of donors.
Please help us make a difference in the lives and health of thousands of Dalit (Untouchables) families in the poor rural communities of the Punjab.
