Reaching out to end malnutrition in Nepal

Say ahh...Young Nepali girl gets a checkup

NYF staff and volunteers recently set up a nutrition camp in two remote villages in central Nepal - screening 500 children for malnutrition and providing them with basic medical care. A third – about 150 children – were found to be malnourished and referred for treatment. About 400 mothers and adults from the community learned about nutrition and sanitation.

More than 40 percent of children in Nepal - one of the world’s poorest countries - suffer from malnutrition. Sixteen NYF-founded clinics throughout the country nurse children back to health and teach their caregivers how to prepare nutritious meals from locally available food.

Staff from NYF’s Nutritional Rehabilitation Home conducts regular outreach camps in Nepal’s rural villages where people have limited access to healthcare.

Your support helps make this important work possible. Thank you and dhyanyabad!
