What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world
remains and is immortal”
And we couldn’t agree more. Gracia Raina Foundation, named after our daughter, was established on 15 May 2017 with the thought of giving back to people, especially to the women of our world.
After embracing parenthood, we realized how a mother-child bond is most special, delicate, and a symbol of creation and sustenance. Unfortunately, in our country, especially in the low-middle income group, childbirth is often associated with morbidity and mortality.
Globally, a baby whose mother dies during childbirth is less likely to survive, and children who have lost their mothers are 10 times more likely to die within two years of the death of their mothers.
We believe these situations can be changed for the better, and for that to happen knowledge and awareness on the subject is crucial. It was with this thought that we took it on us to encourage and promote health and well-being of mothers before, during and after pregnancy and childbirth.
Currently, we are addressing a handful of challenges as that’s the best way to make greater impact. We are positive & optimistic and are trying to maximize our efforts each day to reach as many women as we can.
But, we cannot do it alone; not just the two of us.
We genuinely believe the best way to address such pressing issues is to work as a team, come up with new ideas that will help the cause.
Let us all come together, support one another; build a future, a safety net for our mothers and their newborns.
