The event, which was graced by renowned Marathi film actress Varsha Usgaonkar, shed light on common birth defects like prevention, care and rehabilitation and the way forward in India, and how Maharashtra can take the lead.

Expressing her views, Uma Kalekar, director, Meyer Organics, said, “It gives us immense pleasure to join hands with the Spina Bifida Foundation to take the lead on the issue of birth defects in children, and how mothers at an early stage can help prevent the damage.

Dr Santosh Karmarkar, consultant paediatric surgeon and paediatric urologist, Lilavati
Hospital and Research Centre, and founding member, Spina Bifida Foundation, said, “Spina Bifida is a Latin phrase that literally means split spine. One of the main causes of this occurrence is the lack of folic acid and other important nutrients.”
