What is the 5K Run being held for?
This is a 5K run being held to spread awareness and promote Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby.
Why run for Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby?
Pregnancy is the most vulnerable phase of a woman’s life particularly if she belongs to under-served and rural areas in India where poverty, ignorance, lack of education, healthcare and resources are all mitigating factors.
The year 2020, COVID 19 has caused enormous challenges in all sectors of life not to mention healthcare delivery in the underserved areas. Women lost their local health centers due to closures and prenatal care became non-existent. Expecting mothers were denied care at the time of delivery due to the fear of COVID 19. We began to help by enabling travel of pregnant women to the district hospital for testing and for safe delivery of their newborns.
What is the role of Service Beyond Borders for this cause?
We hold virtual clinic from the US in the underserved areas for expectant moms for their routine check-ups. We learned early on that the most important resource was food, we began to supply food to all our Moms-to-be. We also distribute prenatal vitamins and iron tablets and
provide transportation to women to hospital. We also provide the appropriate vaccines for expectant mothers.
