The poor living in the slums of Delhi, especially the pregnant women and newborn children, face an acute shortage of healthcare. While government hospitals are often not accessed by them owing to the long waiting times and other technicalities, private hospitals are beyond their financial reach. Every day, a number of children die in these slums because of appalling lack of basic healthcare.
To address this grave issue, Save the Children runs 4 Mobile Healthcare Units (MHUs) which cater to the needs of 6 lakh people in 60 slum clusters of Delhi. Read more about our initiative here: http://ow.ly/u31Ci
An MHU is nothing short of a full-fledged clinic. Below we bring you some glimpses of our “clinic on wheels” stationed in a slum in Okhla (South Delhi).
