In Nepal, half the children under five are malnourished and poor nourishment is one of the leading causes of death for young children. Surprisingly, one of the main causes of the problem is ignorance, rather than poverty. Yet, it is just this "curable" cause that makes NYF's Nutritional Rehabilitation Home program so successful.
Through an innovative program of nutritional therapy using only locally produced ingredients, NYF has helped save thousands of children afflicted with malnutrition. While the children are recovering their health, NYF nutritionists teach the mothers safe nutritional practices and proper food preparation. This not only ensures that the children stay healthy once they leave the NRH, the entire family's nutrition benefits from the mother's training.
NYF's NRHs prevent children from dying of malnutrition and from growing up with life-long mental and physical disabilities resulting from malnourishment. Because the children's mothers are educated, the program's impact spreads throughout Nepal.
