Save Children from Malnutrition and Hunger in India
Saving Lives for Less Than a Dollar
SevaChild Volunteers administering vitamin A in the rural village of Nayakuni Thanda, Southern India
SevaChild’s network of over 2000 volunteers travel to remote areas throughout 18 of India’s 29 states identifying and registering at-risk children. We educate parents on the benefits of vitamin A and administer the vital nutrient, twice a year, to thousands of children. All of this relief is delivered at an annual cost of less than one dollar per child.
Every dollar you contribute will help SevaChild volunteers reach more of the estimated 30,000,000 Indian children at risk.
