Of the 5.9m deaths in 2015, 3.6m happened in 10 Asian and African countries — India, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, China, Angola, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Tanzania. Pakistan is among the top Asian countries to have highest child mortality rates.

Neha Mankani is a LUMS graduate working as a midwife, who was torn by the hardship mothers of new born children faced in the hospital. They did not have money to fulfill basic needs of their child’s early health problems. Motivated to do something for these mothers, Neha found the Mama Baby Fund in 2015, which  serves as a rapid response fund for emergency needs that women and their families don’t account for in maternal and gynecological care such as preterm birth, incubator fees, extra medicine costs, and multiple bags of blood. It also responds to in-kind needs with newborn clothes, diapers, baby oil, supplements for the mother etc.
