About The Founder
Dr. Armida Fernandez
It was the 1990s, and like so many other neonatologists in the country, Dr. Armida Fernandez and her team were spending countless hours in the NICU saving lives of underweight and premature infants born to mothers from the urban slums. These mothers were typically unhealthy themselves and had no knowledge on how to be healthy, manage healthy pregnancies or to keep their children healthy. After all the efforts that went into saving these infant's lives, releasing them into these uninformed and impoverished environments was a big concern.
Dr. Fernandez recognized that the only solution to breaking this vicious cycle was to empower these women with the information and tools they needed to build healthier families. Show More
Today, SNEHA is a 350+ person strong and progressive organization that works closely with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai. We do innovative work in the urban slums to reduce maternal mortality, newborn mortality, malnutrition and domestic violence. And at our core remains the belief that the cycle of ill health can and must be broken by creating an urban society whose foundation is built on a healthy and empowered populace.
