An awareness walk against avoidable Incidents that lead to deformity and even death in infants.
Date: 27th May, 2021
Take Off: Tombia Roundabount
Destination: Davem Mini Hub
Globally, 2.5 million newborns die each year, more than 1 million newborns die on the first day of life, making the day of birth the most dangerous day for babies in nearly every country. Infant Mortality is a serious issue that affects our nation’s health. Infants living beyond their first birthdays is a huge accomplishment for many families.
It is rather sad to know that, illness that affects infants are avoidable and can be dealt with before it gets out of hand but lack of information and knowledge makes it go the other way round.
Tiny Heart Technology is organising a walk in commemoration of the International children’s Day 2021 with theme “March for Infant Health”.
The Aim of March For Infant Health

Our aim of the walk is to create awareness for infant health and educate traditional birth attendances, nursing mothers and the general public on ways to curb infant mortality/death and deformity.
