Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

Improving Health and RCH services of flood-affected people
Providing medical services during floods has always been a challenge, especially in Bihar due to its poor health infrastructure. Health interventions during floods and flood like situation need to be examined at policy and implementation level. Displaced people have little or no access to health services, including primary care for mothers and children. Pregnant displaced women have delivered babies without access to safe medical care. The project will endeavour to improve the hygiene, health including reproductive health of poor and marginalized people.
