Asmita at admission
Weighing only 12 pounds, 22-month-old Asmita was admitted to our Nutritional Rehabilitation Home (NRH) in Kathmandu last fall.
She was very hungry and thirsty but was too weak to eat when she arrived on September 14, 2014.
Fifteen days later, the toddler returned home healthy and smiling. And while Asmita was nursed to good health, her mother learned how to better care for her by preparing nutritious meals using locally available food.
To date, we have treated more than 13,000 children in our 16 Nutritional Rehabilitatiion Homes throughout Nepal and taught an almost equal number of mothers how to maintain their child's newfound health.
Our NRH in Kathmandu also serves as a training center and offers dietician education to health care professionals.
