Give A Child the Gift of Life
According to the study published in The Lancet “16.8 lakh children under the age of 5 die of infectious diseases in India every year.” As per the UNICEF Report “the infant mortality rate of Indian children is 44 and the under-five mortality rate is 93 and 25% of newborn are underweight.”
Choices made and actions taken on behalf of children during this critical period affect not only how a child develops but also how a country progresses.
Life Club is a holistic early childhood healthcare program that endeavours to provide financial support for critical care, surgery and health services for under privileged children below the age of 10 years suffering from life threatening ailments. At Pratheksha, we believe that safeguarding the basic issues of sustenance and healthy living among children is an important pre-requisite to any holistic development envisioned.

How Does It Work?
As a recognized name working in this area, Pratheksha receives online requests for medical and financial support from all over India. These requests come from various sources; individuals, NGOs, doctors. We are also connected with orphanages and institutions that refer cases of children to us. The children are met and their credentials are looked into by our staff to ensure that they conform to the laid down criteria. This forms the foundation of the program and enables us to provide hope to those that really need it.
We also organize programs and fund raisers to collect funds to support the treatments of children.
