“I know that I can’t solve all the maternal health challenges in the World by myself. I need and want others to join me.”
Despite the new sustainable development goal (SDG3) prioritizing universal access to sexual and reproductive healthcare, many Indian women facing infertility, fibroids, pregnancy and menstruation-related issues, still struggle to obtain affordable, high-quality care.
This need is particularly pronounced in rural India, where social stigmas often deter women from seeking consultation and treatment, exacerbating the problem
There is an urgent need for enhanced education and standardized approaches in screening, diagnosing, treating, and managing maternal health not only during pregnancy but also in the postnatal period.
For years, gynecological issues among rural women went unaddressed. However, through continuous efforts by BST and the involvement of midwives, remarkable progress has been made in addressing the unresolved health problems of rural women, particularly in Kutch.
Conditions like uterine prolapse and large fibroids, which were previously considered common after home deliveries, are now receiving attention and care.

Impoverished working women have been grappling with conditions like MVR and DVR, while children have been affected by heart diseases such as ASD, VSD, TOF, and PDA. Since 2003, Joy of Helping has played a vital role in managing, collecting, and distributing funds annually to support cardiac camps, addressing these critical healthcare needs in the community.
Additionally, we have made significant efforts in children’s nutrition by supporting organizations such as the Akshaya Patra Foundation. This support enables the provision of hygienic and nutritious mid-day meals in public schools, benefiting underprivileged children.
We have undertaken initiatives to educate and support new mothers through awareness programs focused on health and nutrition for children.
