Challenge

FAO estimates that at least 435 million people are seriously undernourished in the world today. Lack of income is the principal driver of under-consumption and malnutrition for approximately 40 percent of Bangladeshis who live under the poverty line. At least 7 percent of households face acute distress in accessing food on regular basis. We support three meals for about 50 patients daily, at a cost of $.50/meal/patient. Meals are essential to patients' recovery, as they do not eat healthy food

Solution

Around 50 patients, mainly women and children will get three meals a day and clean drinking water that will be the basic requirement to cover their needs for a healthy diet in order to get recuperation in Cox's Bazar Hospital for Women and Children

Long-Term Impact

The project will hire 2 people to cook 3 meals per day for women and children, 50 patients/day and whose families cannot afford to cook a healthy meal. Families come from rural areas, walk to hospital and have no sources to get meals sent by family.
