Geographical barrier/Lack of communication hinders transportation of expectant Mothers to hospital in the last stage of labour or in emergency. Suitable place & cost factors involved in staying outside before delivery is also not up to their reach because of their poor economic status. So, in spite of provision given under JSY, institutional delivery is not reported to have increased.

These problems can be approached through establishing MAA GRUHA (Maternity Waiting Home) especially for people living in most difficult pockets. We are running the Home at Sukinda.


  • To establish alternative support infrastructure for addressing communication problems in difficult and inaccessible pockets for ensuring institutional delivery.
  • To increase institutional delivery in the difficult and inaccessible pockets ultimately minimising maternal & newborn mortality & morbidity.
