Babies like Pratik are healthy again - thanks to you

Before and After
Before and After

“Pratik”, a 22 month old boy from a family of 6, was brought to the Nutritional Rehabilitation Home (NRH) in Chitawan from a very remote village called Lothar.

His impoverished family ate only two meager meals each day with very little protein. Pratik was suffering from diarrhea and had no appetite. Frightened by his worsening condition, his parents took him to the hospital. A doctor there recognized the desperate situation and sent them to the NRH.

At admission, Pratik weighed only 12 pounds – 6 pounds below the normal weight for his 28” height. With protruding ribs, sparse hair, irritable mood, he was suffering.

Pratik could digest only milk for the first week of his stay. He was then fed healthy versions of the food his family could easily access or grow themselves, while his mother was educated on the importance of nutrition.

With nutritious food, proper medication and care, Pratik’s condition improved dramatically. While he stayed a little longer than the usual 21 to 28 days, in less than 6 weeks he gained over 5 pounds and transformed into a healthy and happy boy.

These life-saving interventions – at a cost of only $350 per child – are made possible by generous friends like you. We hope you feel proud of the difference your support makes. Thank you, and dhanyabad!
