Mothers Day Celebration

SI Madurai celebrated Mother’s day on Tuesday may 15th at Karumbalai slum. 72 ladies and children were benefited. This program was conducted at 6 pm in community hall. A hygiene session by Dr. Sudha Dheep was very informative. Dr. Prasanna Sundarapandian, pediatrician of Padma specialty hospital enlightened them on parenting and senior dietitian Ms. Murugeswari gave tips on nutrition. These sessions were interactive, well executed and received. Goodies to the mothers and health drink to children were provided.
This program was in association with Madurai Institute of Social Science and Seed plan.
To re-establish the lost glory and pride of mother, SI Madurai celebrated Mother’s Day by initiating the project: “RETURNING THE FAVOR” on 15th May at Karambale Slum’s community hall, k.k.Nagar, Madurai.
We embarked this journey to empower the women of the urban slum as many women and girls face gender discrimination which systematically undermines their access to health care, for reasons that include fewer financial resources and constraints on mobility. This is compounded by additional burdens imposed by gender disparities which limit their ability to stay healthy. These include long hours spent on domestic work, unsafe work environments and gender-based violence, with mechanisms for prevention and protection are often inadequate.
