"I never thought my child would survive, It happened like a miracle!" sobbed Aarthy (name changed). Aarthy, a young mother, less than 5 feet in height was advised to undergo C-section by her regular doctor due to anticipated risks involved in normal delivery due to her short stature. Unfortunately, Aarthy developed unexpected pain and was admitted at a different hospital. In contrary to the primary doctor's advice, Aarthy was taken up for a 'normal delivery' at this hospital and only after 8 hours of struggle, the doctors decided to perform a Caesarean section. As a consequence of delayed C-section, the baby experienced respiratory distress and was kept under Intensive care at the same hospital. Aarthy anxiously waited for 24 hours to know about the condition of her baby but was in vain. "'I was not informed anything on my baby's condition but I knew she was not well" claimed Aarthy. She almost lost hope that her baby would survive. She desperately wanted to get her baby out of the hospital but was helpless as financial constraints were her stumbling block. Luckily, a well-wisher in the hospital informed her about the services of Ekam Foundation and Aarthy certainly sought the help of Ekam. On receiving the information from Aarthy, within minutes, Ekam moved the new born baby to a reputed hospital for better treatment and care where the entire treatment cost of the baby was borne. The child was stabilised with superior treatment and was discharged in a short period. The happy mother thanked the doctors and Ekam for the timely help and support that she and her child had received.

Similar services are being carried out in the city of Bengaluru which was kick started in early 2016 by Ekam Foundation in collaboration with NTT Data Private Limited. NTT known for its longstanding reputation for social activities is the first in Karnataka to support Ekam and leads the way in saving lives of underprivileged children. In 3 months, almost 15 babies were treated at a reputed hospital without any financial burden to the parents of the underprivileged communities.

In addition to these services, community health activities focussing on Maternal and Child Health are also being done through this project. So far more than 100 children have been treated for minor illnesses, 12 children with serious illnesses are being followed up who were identified in Anandhapuram slum of Bengaluru through the medical camps conducted in the same area.

As a step to upgrade Government hospitals, the Paediatric ICU of Vani Vilas Hospital, a premier institute for Maternal and Child Health Services was also equipped with 7 essential life saving medical equipments for monitoring and treatment of critically ill children.

Gross Community Happiness - Ekam the wholeness

EKAM believes in Gross Happiness of an Individual, a family and a Community as the real development. Social and cultural well being of people is the priority. The Gross National Happiness (GNH), is an age old concept deeply rooted in Oriental cultures, especially stemming from Budhist spiritual values. This was a counter hegemonic to the hegemonic western material development model which was and still is measured by gross domestic product (GDP). Know More
