In January of 2019 I visited Pune, India with a medical mission team. There, we provided a free medical camp to over 1500 poor people from local communities. There were so many issues affecting the people of Pune that really broke my heart. Diabetes, High Blood pressure, malnourishment and dental issues, and hearing loss are prevalent. We were able to provide triage medical examinations, pharmaceutical medications, a visit with a doctor, and health education. It was an amazing experience. The saddest part is that we could only do so much in a 2 week time frame. My vision is to provide medical treatment for the poorest communities year round.
I travelled around and saw the slums; home to so many people living below the poverty level. They have little to no food or clothing and some are living on the streets. They have nothing. No hope, no education, no medical care, and no future. This is devastating to witness while we are living so comfortably in the United States with Television, Cars, plenty of food, healthcare, and all sorts of entertainment. We can provide change to this area with your help. Let’s create change.
In Pune there is a home for young girls who are rescued from sex trafficking and other unsafe living situations associated with poverty. It is such a beautiful thing to provide housing, clothing, food, education, and love to these girls. My vision is to expand this project to house 2000 girls as there are so many more that are not yet rescued and given hope. Together we can make a difference and change lives. Please support the Mantis Foundation today.
Clean drinking water is only accessible to those who can afford filtration systems. There are so many communities with no access to clean water so they have to drink what is available. There is a wide array of illness due to parasites and bacterias in this water. The Mantis Foundation can help change this with your help.
Please join us in our fight against the effects of poverty in India.
