Thank you for caring for some of the world's most vulnerable children

Thousands of Nepali children have little or no access to medical care so NYF’s innovative Malnution Program and Treatment program brings the healthcare to them.

This year, a team of doctors, nurses and nutritionists held 13 Nutrition Camps in rural villages and schools to screen children for malnutrition and other health problems. A total of 2,291 children were screened. Of those, a third was found to be malnourished.

The children that were severely malnourished were referred to one of NYF’s 16 nutrition clinics, where they received healthy food and were treated for other ailments. Their caretakers, usually their mothers, received education on good nutritional practices.

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.

NYF”s staff from Kathmandu also train medical and nursing students, and childcare workers in best practices of nutrition and diet management. More than 1,000 people received training in the past nine months.

Thank you for supporting this life-saving work!
