There are a staggering 56 million people living in the slums of India. Here, rampant poverty and preventable sickness keep the population caught in a cycle they cannot break alone. Malaria, typhoid, cholera and TB all thrive in slum conditions, and without proper healthcare and education, these communities will fall even farther into despair.
That is why Project ASHA was created: to prevent the spread of deadly, treatable disease throughout the slums of India, one person at a time. ASHA places strategic clinics throughout at-risk communities that catch epidemics before they happen.
Currently, ASHA serves 2 million of the 56 million that are suffering without ready access to clean water, wholesome food and quality medical care, but together we can help expand their impact.
It’s a noble cause that deserves everyone’s respect, so help us give people stuck in the slums of Inda every opportunity to find their way out. All you have to do is watch and share InspireMore stories. The more you do that, the more advertisers pay us, and the more we are able to give to this important cause! Get started today; let’s make a difference.
