Did you know...

Around 14,00,000 people are bitten by snakes each year(bite to death ratio is 64:1). This means 126 people die every day due to snake-bites in India

How you can help

Objective of this project is to educate people to avoid snakebite in Gujarat, India, and bring down the number of snakebites related deaths. Majority of these bites can be avoided with some basic precaution, education about proper first-aid and medical treatment. This can help bring down death rate, as too many people rely upon home remedies & witch craft, instead of going to hospital.
