Poor health can drastically limit a child’s development—physically and mentally—and diminish his or her long-term life prospects. In India, many children suffer from preventable and treatable illnesses like those caused by intestinal worms, which prevent them from going to school and stunt their growth.
In fact, malnutrition and stunting are significant challenges among India’s children. These compromise their ability to learn and heighten their risk of other serious, life threatening illnesses. The public health system is overwhelmed and under-financed, hence organizations like Children’s Hope India fill an important gap in helping poorer children obtain critical medical care.
At Children’s Hope India we believe that every child should have basic medical care, so we strive to ensure that all of the children we serve through our projects have a chance to not only survive, but thrive. The services we support range from informing parents about nutrition and hygiene to encouraging them to have their children immunized from diseases like measles, to providing eye exams and lifesaving heart surgeries.
