"Our mothers do not have time to take care of their own health and fitness. It is time that we wake up to the fact that unless we do something on war footing basis, the overall wellbeing of our mothers is not going to improve. We at Million Moms plan to motivate at least a million moms to take charge of themselves and their health with this initiative”, informs Dr. Mani Pavitra.
MillionMoms is a health initiative to motivate women in districts of Andhra and Telangana to encourage mothers to move so that they can have an active life.
Sharing more details about MillionMoms, Ms. Prema Manvi, another activist of the initiative said, “Mother is the important person in the world today. Mothers mold the future of our society. If not for our mothers, we would not be what we are today. The sad part is that most mothers are neglected in our society”.
Mothers today work hard, lose their health and end up becoming an emotional punching bag from all sides of the society - spouses, children, parents, in-laws, extended family as well as friends. Also, we would not want our mothers to go thru that experience… anymore. MillionMoms is an initiative which will change the status quo.
