Cricketer Suresh Raina who celebrated his daughter Gracia Raina’s first birthday on Monday (15th May) announced the launch of a Foundation dedicated for underprivileged mothers across the country along with wife Priyanka Chaudhary Raina.

The foundation is to aid the poor mothers and children across India. They named the foundation on their daughter’s name. The Gracia Raina Foundation is a foundation dedicated towards creating awareness and working closely with the mothers and the children who are in need which can be from physical help to mental health issues or even beyond that.

The cricketer said, “This is a something very personal to me and my wife and to announce it on our daughter’s birthday is very special. My wife has been working towards this and has put in a lot of time and effort and I fully support her endeavours.”

Priyanka has often seen doing charity for underprivileged children in the recent past.

“With this foundation we hope to shed light and help women and babies across the country,” said Suresh Raina.

“Gracia Raina Foundation aims to provide support and effective solutions to ensure maternal and new-born wellness by implementing a self-sustained model. The idea is to empower, engage and facilitate women by enhancing their capabilities. Our model is one of creative collaboration, creating a supportive environment for all women,” added Priyanka Raina.
