Vitamin A Deficiency Disorder (VADD) is a devastating disease affecting millions of India’s undernourished infants and children. The ravages of this disease can leave children sick, blind and even dead. SevaChild provides children and their lactating mothers with adequate amounts of vitamin A to protect them from this disease and help them build strong bodies. Save a Child

Creating sponsor/child relationships
SevaChild connects sponsors with rural village children living below the poverty line in Karnataka. Our programs offer a unique experience of communication for these children and their sponsors via a shared personal page on our site; photos and updated reports are available 24/7 by simply logging in. For surprisingly little, you can provide food, regular health check ups, an English standard education and family assistance to a child in need. Sponsor a Child
Two "time-release" doses of Vitamin A per year can alleviate Vitamin A Deficiency Disorder (VADD) in at-risk children (ages 5 and under). Vitamin A supplementation has been proven to protect children from Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD) disease and reduce related child mortality by about 23%.
