The vision: Maternity Unit in the tribal hills of Vellore, Tamil Nadu, South India.
Closing date: 31 July 2022
Why am I doing the Vancouver Marathon 2022?
I have run many marathons in support of charities, raising funds for Prostate Cancer UK to eye projects in Angola.
Dying newborns have become part and parcel of tribal life in the Jawadi Hills, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, in South India.
Dangerous birthing environments have meant women pay the highest price, with their life, when they go into labour. The lack of a maternity unit has led to 98% of tribal children being born at home, if they survive the birth.
Home to 60,000, the region is 12 hours away from a hospital. The journey can be treacherous given the surrounding terrain.
To reduce infant and maternal mortality, Christian Medical College Vellore wants to build a maternity and emergency care hospital offering healthcare services 24/7. The overall budget is £50,000 and this is where you come in.
Please give what you can to help save women and children who like every other human being have a right to life.
Thank you in advance!
