“Aayush” is an initiative by Diya India which aims at giving the young souls another chance at life. The underprivileged children as young as newborn babies up to the age of 14 who are suffering from Congenital Heart Disease and You Support We Connect are provided with appropriate medical treatment. The idea behind is to provide advanced healthcare facilities to the children whose parents are in no capacity to afford their treatment.
The foundation has provided their families with financial and emotional support. These children come from economically weaker sections of society and their parents are either seasonally employed or are working at low wages. The initiative has brought a ray of hope in the lives of those who were hopeless after being dejected due to lack of funds for the treatment of their child.
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most frequently occurring congenital disorder, responsible for 28% of all congenital birth diseases. The birth prevalence of CHD is reported to be 8-12/1000 live births. Considering a rate of 9/1000, about 1.35 million babies are born with CHD each year globally.
