Barakat Bundle

Barakat Bundle is a nonprofit that works with local communities to create life-saving care and education bundles for mothers and newborns in need. Each Barakat Bundle includes 1) evidence-based medical items; 2) our interactive health education calendar; and 3) our safe-sleep bamboo rocking cradle with a built-in mosquito net; all co-created with over 100 mothers, fathers, and healthcare workers in rural India using human-centered design.

To receive Barakat Bundle, mothers must give birth in a health center to increase access to skilled birth attendants. Barakat Bundle takes a financially sustainable approach to maternal and child health by selling our Indian-made, safety-certified bamboo cradles in North America at a premium price to subsidize distribution of full Barakat Bundles to families in need in South Asia. At Barakat Bundle, our vision is to give every newborn and every mother an equal access to a healthy start.
