From a Newborn to a Newborn

Goal - $5000
Raised- $2000

Project From a Newborn to a Newborn has been supported by Hope Avenue since 2010. This project funds Neonatal Intensive Care Unit(NICU) for newborn children of needy families in India. Dr. Shanmugam Sundaram in Chennai, India started this project and Hope Avenue is humbled to be a part of this. Emergency care costs can be inaccessible to many poor families and your contribution can make a world of difference.

This project is largely funded by Birthday package services provided by Hope Avenue. Children in the community choose from a variety of themes in exchange of a donation to Hope Avenue. Honorary volunteers conduct workshops like bead making, greeting card making, crafty door hangers and so on to provide a couple of hours of fun.

If you are in the Raleigh NC area in the USA or Siruseri, Chennai India area, you can choose to have your children's birthday to give something precious to a newborn on it's "birth"day. Birthday packages start as low as $10 per child. Contact us via email ( and we can set up a birthday event for you.
