Reality Gives Mother's Day Special...Gift your mother the gift of giving!

On May 12th is Mother's Day so we thought we give you a helping hand to find the perfect gift to honour your mum AND help the mothers of our community in Dharavi at the same time. How?

Here is the deal: you donate towards the FMCH (Foundation for Mother and Child Health) Nutrition Initiative on behalf of your mother and we send her a special greeting card by email or post on Mother's Day*.

Does that sound good? Then read further.

FMCH is an organisation dedicated to the eradication of malnutrition in children ages 0-6 years from economically under –privileged families. FMCH believes that early health care and balanced nutrition are critical for a child to reach his /her full potential.

To reduce malnutrition, FMCH activities address mothers to educate them about the most important determinants of malnutrition. This means emphasizing disease control and prevention activities, education to improve domestic child-care and feeding practices in one on one nutritional counseling, cooking demos, home visits and micronutrient supplementation. Read more on our website or in this recent blog article.

With the support of Reality Gives they started their successful program in Dharavi in July 2012. Today we have 87 registered children and more mothers approaching us every week to join the program. That's why we plan to open another location for these weekly sessions in June 2013. Now we need YOUR support to implement this project on a higher scale. Help the mothers of Dharavi to fight malnutrition by providing space, materials and counseling.

It's easy: visit our paypal donation channel, enter an amount of your choice and then send us your mother's name and email or postal address by clicking on 'Add special instructions to the seller' before finishing the donation. That's it! You can also add a personal message which will be sent with the greeting card.

Show your mum how much you care by helping the mothers of Dharavi care for their children. It's the gift of giving!

Donate now here.

*By postal service it might reach the given address later than the given date.
