Why Should I Care :
: India after decades of independence is still struggling to provide basic health care facilities to its citizens? Provisions for basic health care services especially in rural India are few and far between. In India 45 children die every hour due to respiratory infections. 1 child dies every 2 minutes due to diarrhea. And annually, about 2 million children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases.
