After this counselling and health education was given to pregnant mothers who were noticed to have high blood pressure.

Heamatinics namely Fersolate, Folic Acid and vitamin Bco was given to all mothers.
Lastly, gifts were given to all mothers present.Each gift pack contained surgical glove, cotton wool, cord clamp and 2diapers.
Four volunteers carried out the outreach along with the founder namely:
