Dear Sponsor,

On behalf of Ananda Marga, I cordially invite you to be a sponsor of Walk-to-Help 2013, a

marginalised communities of rural India.

Ananda Marga works with and assists poor, impoverished areas in improving their quality
of life. The aims and objectives of the organisation are exclusively charitable and thus
non-profit based. All of our Walk-to-help coordinators are volunteering their time for this
event, which means every dollar you give contributes directly to the success of this

Now more than ever, we need your help in responding to the challenges of a changing
world. I thank you again on behalf of all our members nationwide and the thousands of
others whose lives will be touched by your generosity.

1.0 Walk-to-Help: The Way Forward
Walk-to-help is an annual Dallas fundraising event to provide financial support for
charitable hospitals and medical programs in areas of rural India that have substandard

The event includes a non-competitive 5-kilometer walk and a post-event fair with vendors
and games and activities for youth. The Walk-to-help after-event gathering will provide an
opportunity for families, friends and individuals to socialize with one another, gain
knowledge and have fun.

Walk-to-help is expected to attract many sections of the Dallas Indian-American and other
communities, including students, families, athletes, corporate teams, and other non-profit
organizations. Advertising through print, broadcast and electronic media for this event will
reach 250,000 people.

" Ambulances, medical equipment, inpatient rooms and furniture are required

" Will provide charitable healthcare to a rural population of approximately
100,000 living within a 25-kilometer radius.

2.0 Background
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the population of India is 1.2 billion,
yet it occupies a physical area that is '2)3&4/56 the size of the continental United States
(population 310 million). By the year 2070, the population of India could exceed 2 billion.
Acceleration in economic growth has made India among the 10 fastest growing
developing countries, yet the countrys per capita income remains low, with 35% of the
population earning less than $1 US/day.

2.1 Primary Health Care: Now More Than Ever
Health is among the top personal concerns. 40% of the population cited health as their
main concern before other issues, such as financial problems, housing or crime.

Accoiuing to figuies compileu by 0NICEF anu 0SAIB:
" 40% of children under 3 years of age are malnourished;
" More than 2 million children die annually from preventable and curable
infectious diseases and other causes;
" 50% of women are anemic;
" Only 15% of mothers receive complete prenatal care;
" Only 34% of deliveries take place in facilities, and, at best, only 42% are
assisted by a health professional;
" Tuberculosis kills more than 1,000 a day, but only 1 out of 6 has access to
effective treatment;
" 0.3% of adults in India are infected with HIV, representing nearly 6 million
infected people, a number second only to South Africa;
" There are only 6 medical practitioners per 10,000 (compared to the United
States 55 doctors per 10,000);
" Only 2% of Indias central government expenditure is allocated for healthcare

2.2 The Problems
Although rapid changes in the world of media and information technology have
contributed to higher health awareness, the rural population of Indian still faces two
major challenges:

www.walktohelp.oig Copyiighteu 2u1S Page S

1. Access to adequate medical facilities and qualified personnel, and
2. The ability to pay for examinations, testing, procedures, treatment and

2.3 The Solution
To this end, recognizing that if the problems of India could be solved, solutions would
then be available for other nations facing similar problems, non-governmental
organizations, international agencies and foundations from large to small are coming
forward to compassionately address this health crisis of immense proportion.
