Niramaya Health Foundation is a non-profit and non-government organization started in June 2001 in Mumbai for improving health of the communities it serves. Niramaya was conceptualized even before that, in 1999, to tackle commonly found ‘Micronutrient Deficiencies’ in preschool children. Originally an endeavor of Pratham Mumbai Education Initiative to improve the health of balwadi (pre-school) children, Niramaya took shape and came into existence. Since Niramaya’s inception the healthcare activities have broadened beyond child health and nutrition to good health for all. Niramaya has also expanded the range of the healthcare activities from curative to preventive and promotive care.
Niramaya believes in carrying out cost effective, measurable and sustainable health care projects and programs for marginalized communities.
Every year Niramaya celebrates international Women’s Day with various interesting themes and this year it was advocacy of mothers. We celebrated it with mothers of ‘Amarnath School’ children at Chembur as a part of Anemia/Malnutrition Prevention Control Program.
The nutrition week was celebrated with various activities such as focus group discussions, role plays, educational games, etc with adolescents and women by our health workers in the Bandra community areas.
Your contribution will ensure a disease free childhood for a healthy and responsible adulthood.
