Pregnancy is a beautiful phase of every woman’s life. 

Given the present scenario of the pandemic, social distancing and self-isolation gives space to anxiety that makes it less enjoyable. 

The United Nations has estimated that 140 million children will be born in 2021. According to The National Family Health Survey 2019-20, Karnataka has approximately 97,000 pregnant women per month, out of which 43,211 women are found to be anaemic.

Pregnant mothers find it difficult to stay in high spirits all the time. For women who have limited financial resources, eating a wholesome meal that can nourish their body and their child’s, becomes difficult.

How does Akshaya Patra help?

To improve the nutritional status of pregnant mothers, The Akshaya Patra Foundation has joined hands with the Government of Karnataka. As a part of the Nutrition for Pregnant Mothers Programme, the NGO distributes Shakti Kits to 50,000 pregnant women in the state.

Inside the Shakti Kit

Akshaya Patra distributes Shakti kits priced at ₹825 to nourish pregnant women with the required nutrients. With each kit, a pregnant mother will receive the following items that can take care of food requirements for 15 days:

Every Shakti kit will ensure a boost in the immunity of pregnant mothers and women. Only a strong immunity will help them prepare to fight any disease or virus. Good nutrition and healthy food intake during the antenatal period are critical for expecting mothers. Eating food rich in fibre, iron and calcium, etc. can decrease the risk of congenital diseases and nutritional deficiencies in newborns.

I want to distribute Shakti Kits to malnourished pregnant women.
