We work with our sister organization Ekam Foundation http://ekamoneness.org to provide medical care for children in India who have financial constraints. Parents who earn minimum daily wages cannot afford major surgery or ICU care for their sick children. They are in a sad state of giving up on the sick child in order to feed the other children. Ekam steps in to pay for their health care costs.
Ekam also has screening programs to identify children who need medical care/ surgery, community awareness and education campaigns in rural areas as well as camps for adolescent girls.
Our goal is to reduce infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate.
Ekam does this by training nurses, servicing equipment and keeping it functional in public health systems, etc.
They have reached over a million children. Please partner with us in taking this mission forward- No child should be denied health care due to financial reasons.
We are looking for volunteers who can spare time and have skills- fundraising/ marketing/ computer/ website skills - to help spread the word about Ekam in USA. Please see www.ekamusa.org and contact us how you would like to help us.
We need support with recruiting volunteers throughout the country, organizing fundraising events, identifying donors and identifying resources for a new non-profit. You could join a local chapter by filling out the volunteer information form on our website and help locally as well. www.ekamusa.org
Please submit this form with your details, so we can connect you with the appropriate volunteer coordinator.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
