"Every day, 20 babies are born in the hospital and the kits will be distributed to all the mothers at the time of discharge from the hospital. The state Health and Family Welfare Department has made all the arrangements to distribute the kits in all Primary Health Centers and Government Hospitals," said Dr S Geethalakshmi, Director of Medical Education.

V Sumathi, a recipient of the kit said, "We cannot afford to buy all these things. A lot of people like me will be benefited by the kit." The scheme is also launched at the Government Kasturba Gandhi Hospital for Women and Children and General Hospital.
