Suman returned home happy and healthy... thanks to you!

"Suman" when he was discharged from the NRH
"Suman" when he was discharged from the NRH

Six-year-old “Suman” was brought to one of NYF’s Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes (NHRs) in a dreadful condition. His ribs clearly visible, he weighed only 20.7 lb – well under half of what an average six-year-old boy should weigh.

Suman could not even stand on his own. He suffered from rickets, a bone disorder caused by a deficiency of vitamin D, calcium, or phosphate – a result of his severe malnutrition.

This was a challenging case. Suman required healthy foods and good nutrition, but his bones were too fragile to support any immediate gain in weight. NRH staff carefully devised a treatment plan, designed specifically for Suman, so he could safely gain enough weight to receive proper medical care at a hospital.

We are happy to report that after putting on enough weight, Suman was recently discharged from the hospital. He returned home in high spirits – and we’re so thankful to our donors for helping to make that possible!
