Anoopam Mission Mahila Aarogya Abhiyan
Anoopam Mission is an international socio-spiritual charitable organization and a public registered trust. It is grounded in the Swaminarayan faith, which fuels its drive to serve humanity selflessly. Through the vision of its spiritual leader Sant Bhagwant Sahebji, Anoopam Mission works to elevate communities in every way, through provision of education, health-care, disaster relief, social welfare and cultural and community based activities. Today, through these numerous activities, Anoopam Mission has reached out to change the lives of those most in need.
In the field of healthcare, Anoopam Mission’s numerous initiatives include a community health centre, a mobile clinic (for interior rural villages), eye camps, nature cure hospital, health awareness campaigns and much more.
AMMAA is a unique healthcare programme that was launched by Anoopam Mission in 2007 to target the health-care needs of underprivileged women and girls. The mother’s role in each family unit is of utmost importance. Only if she is physically and mentally healthy, will she be able to raise a complete and healthy family, leading to a healthy community. However, the health care needs of these women are usually ignored or considered unaffordable with respect to the rest of the family’s needs. Consequently, in the long run not only the woman but the whole family unit suffers when the woman in the household falls ill.
The AMMAA program was thus begun, through which check-ups and treatments are carried out for women, for common illnesses such as anemia and back pain to more serious illnesses like cancer, regardless of caste, creed, race or religion.
Through the AMMAA program, Anoopam Mission has undertaken the humanitarian task of screening for
- Regular Health check-ups
- Preventive Treatment for Anemia
- Eye Check up
- Breast and Uterine Cervical Cancer
- Menstrual Disorders
- Pregnancy Related Disorders
- Obesity and other Girl Child Health related issues
So far thousands of women and girls have benefitted from these services, including those in interior rural areas.
AMMAA’s objective is to provide both health-care and health awareness, to bring about happy, healthy communities.
