It is a real good effort to take care of the future generation, even before it comes to this earth. In today's so called fast and materialistic world people do not have proper awareness as what they should know and should not! Keep up your good effort: All the very best and good luck!

The explanation given by the staff is informative and useful. It will definitely reach the people so that the concerned people will take care of the child from the date of pregnancy and also at the time of birth. Of course it will be followed up by the support of the family members after the birth of the child so that they also will become a normal child and a good citizen of India for the growth of our nation.
