The joy of a good meal

Village

Hi Everyone
This is Neelam the senior nurse from the health project. Its time for another project report.
The rains have come to Bihar and the race is on to plant the rice. When visitors come here at this time of year they remark on how verdant the fields are and how India is full of color and the smiles of the children who have so little in terms of possessions of any kind including clothes.
Its sometimes easy to romanticise the simple rural life as if were a lifestyle choice.
Of course life is a struggle here for so many here in some of the poorest villages in Rural India. Whilst starvation deaths are rare the scale of growth stunting undersized children for thier age and malnutrition here in Bihar is one of the worst in the world. It has been called a national disgrace and readers of previous reports will be aware of the details that we have covered before.
I wish I could say that health services are better here in the villages. I wish I could say that our nutritious meal program was no longer needed. Sadly I am unable to report real progress in health care service provision on any meaningful scale here in Bihar.
But that does not mean that there is no affect of our programs on the local community. In the villages that we work the maternal health has been improved a lot..
This was Dr Verma our medical consultant says..
'I can tell you from years of medical check ups and the projects meticulous record keeping including case histories and patient details that the beneficial effects of the project on the populations health is proven.
The nutritional meal program provides oils and protein that the children would not be able to consume in the qualities and quantity provided.
The beneficial effects on the children are measurable in terms of no malnutrition or stunted growth in the villages providing the meal'
Thanks for your vital support
Neelam.
