Clinic staff screen for malnutrition among earthquake suviors

More than 350 children and their mothers who were displaced by the devastating earthquakes in Nepal last spring recently attended a two-day nutrition clinic hosted by NYF.

Held in a temporary settlement for earthquake survivors in Nepal’s Dhading district, the clinic was staffed by doctors, nurses and nutrition experts. A third of the children were found to be malnourished and many suffered from a range of medical conditions.

Specialists treated the children on site and taught mother’s the basics of good nutrition and hygiene. Children found to be seriously malnourished were referred to one of NYF’s 16 nutritional rehabilitation homes located throughout the country.

NYF has also established nine Community Nutrition Kitchens throughout the earthquake ravaged districts to provide nutritious meals for children and train their mothers on best nutrition practices and family hygiene.

Thank you for feeding the children of Nepal.

Namaste!
