Dear Supporter of Save Kids Trust,
It is a great privilege to write this seasonal update. March 9-14, 2023, three board members traveled to Jaipur to be ‘on the ground’ with Save Kids Trust to witness firsthand the impact your support is making. It was a very busy few days. Each morning we visited families served by a clinic. In the evenings, we participated in different educational events, and each event had a medical street clinic running nearby. The India Team worked very hard during these long days, and we appreciate it so much.
Our board member, who had not visited the clinics previously, was struck by the locations of the clinics – which are not close to each other. He marveled at how each clinic is central to at least three Informal Housing Settlements (aka slums, although this is not our preferred term). It would be a long, expensive journey for residents living near one clinic to go to a different clinic. This was on purpose. SKT can reach more people if our clinics are geographically spread out around Jaipur.
You may have seen that India has had unusual hot weather this last six weeks. Jaipur regularly got above 112 degrees. Dr. Saini said it was "hot, hot, hot". During a story telling event, watch what happened. It will make you smile!!
Dr. Saini honors all mothers in honor of donor Doe Shively, who loved the work of Save Kids Trust. It’s always fun to see video of the events in Jaipur!
