Transforming lives through health and education... thanks to you!
By Eimi Olson - Project Leader
Outreach camp in progress
In Nepal, poor nutrition contributes to more than half of all child deaths. Malnutrition is a serious issue, but thanks to your support, it can be readily addressed through education and treatment.
One highlight of NYF’s nutrition programs this quarter was the success of our outreach camps. These camps are designed to help us “go on the road” by providing life-saving interventions to isolated and rural communities. Each two to three day camp reaches 500-800 children and their caregivers.
This quarter, 2,262 children and caregivers attended the camps. Through nutritional screenings and general health check ups, 711 children were found to be malnourished. Minor cases were treated on the spot with medicine and dietary supplements, while more serious patients were taken to our Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes to receive more intensive care. By the end of the camp, over 1900 caretakers had also participated in nutritional education sessions.
