The Mama Care Initiative stands as a beacon of hope, offering holistic support to pregnant women.

Approximately 1,701 pregnant women have already enrolled in the one-year health insurance programme.

The initiative collaborates with the Custos Care Foundation to ensure seamless implementation.

The expectant mothers receive antenatal care, safe delivery services, and postnatal support.

The beneficiaries also receive essential food supplies, including 1,701 bags of rice, and financial assistance.
