EKAM UTD was founded in Spring 2019. Since then, our mission has been to raise awareness and funds towards providing comprehensive healthcare to mothers and children in rural Indian communities. We collaborate with organizations such as EKAM USA, Wipe Out Kids Cancer, and Feed My Starving Children to accomplish our goals of improving the health and wellbeing of all members of our population.
