2-year-old Kavita’s parents were daily-wage labourers from Dediyapada village in Gujarat. They migrated from village to village in search of work, to make ends meet. Their financial condition affected Kavita’s health severely and the lack of basic nutrition made it deteriorate. She lost a lot of weight and soon, she started suffering from severe malnourishment.
During one of their routine home surveys, CRY members met Kavita and noticed the severity of her condition. They realised that her parents didn’t have the means or the know-how to avail treatment. The team decided to intervene and quickly made arrangements to get her admitted at the Child Malnutrition Treatment Centre (CMTC). She was provided with proper treatment and nutritious food.
With care, Kavita was nourished back to health in just 14 days! With the right guidance and help from CRY, today, Kavita has completely recovered and is a healthy child. Also, her parents are being the vectors of change, guiding the community about children’s health and spreading awareness about programs.
