Improving maternal and infant healthcare delivery in developing countries

Founders' Message

In 2017, Dr. Prakash Kabbur and Dr. Sumana Nanjundachar founded Train & Help Babies Organization, a volunteer-based 501(c)3 nonprofit. This formalized years of contribution to their home country, where they had been donating their time and skills to medical centers in Southern India. 

As physicians, they wanted to share their knowledge in the fields of pediatrics and neonatology to help educate their counterparts in India in an effort to improve healthcare delivery and patient outcomes in the local communities.
