You can save a child's life by donating just Rs. 1500/-

This incident changed our lives, it gave us a purpose, a Mission: to save every child's life

It was 13th January 2016 - I was doing field work in the remote tribal district of Malkangiri in Odisha. I got a call from my friend Naresh, from the neighboring Sukma District in Chhattisgarh. Both districts are intense Naxal-affected areas separated by the Sabari river. He crossed the river by boat to show me a picture in his mobile, which we can never forget. It was a horrific case of a Severe Acute Malnourished child (Image attached below). It shook our conscience. We rushed the child to a district hospital, but alas! it was too late... the child had died.

 
Unfortunately this was not the only case; officially, every second child in the district is malnourished. These districts are plagued with Naxalites resulting in frequent conflicts and damages. Recently in April, 2017, 25 CRPF Jawans were killed in a Maoist attack in Sukma. All of this has resulted in dismal condition of healthcare and medical facilities. Decades of conflicts have taken lives of thousand innocent children and mothers. 
 
I DO has decided to make it as a life time mission, to ensure every child lives to enjoy a healthy future. Currently, we are the only community engaged NGO in Sukma District. We are engaging community to create a model to diagnose and treat malnutrition.

With just Rs. 1500/- you can save a child's life. We invite you to join our journey in saving every child and giving them a bright future. Your support is truly valuable to us as it will help us in reaching more tribal families and villages in India.
