Our Journey

  1. Paediatrician, Dr Sunil Mehra Founded Mamta in December 1990. It was started as a small clinic in Tigri (an urban slum in Delhi) for the underprivileged.

The project focused on improving the maternal and pregnancy outcomes for women in Tigri and surrounding areas.

Staff members raised money through small fund raising activities, including selling the book written by Mamta's founder, Dr Sunil Mehra.
