Protecting The Health Of Our Children

Every child deserves to be healthy and well-nourished, no matter how precarious their economic or family circumstances are. After all, a child struggling with a health issue has almost no chance at educational achievement or the bright future we wish for them.

Tragically, many children in India are dealing with serious health struggles every day.

  • More than 1/3 of children under age five are malnourished. 
  • Every 20 seconds a child dies from preventable causes like pneumonia, preterm and birth complications, newborn infections, diarrhea and malaria. 

The silver lining to these frightening circumstances is that we can do something to improve the health of children.  At Children’s Hope India we support projects and services ranging from working with parents on nutrition and hygiene issues, to facilitating essential immunizations, eye exams and lifesaving heart surgeries.

“When I come to the school, I see the surroundings. The playground with grass on ground, big and beautiful trees, friends to play and learn lessons with and this all inspires me. I feel very nice being here.”

–Sham, seventh grade student in CHI-funded school in Bhuj, Gujarat
