Reduce Malnutrition & Death of 2000 Tribal People

GLOBAL GIVING REPORT JULY-SEPTEMBER  2018.

MAHAN (Meditation, AIDS, Health, Addiction, Nutrition) is a non-government organization established in 1998 to improve health care in Melghat region. MAHAN was touched by Gandhian teaching that “youths should go to the villages to serve as real India is in villages”. Melghat is the hilly forest area in the beautiful Satpuda mountain ranges. Population is 300,000 & 75% of them are tribal. Korku is the major tribe of Melghat. Most of the tribal (>90 %) are farmers or labourers, living below poverty line (>75%) & very hard life inkaccha houses(>90%) mostly without electricity & illiterate (>50%). Medical facilities are worst in Melghat as compared to rest of Maharashtra.  Due to lack of proper medical facilities & superstitions, tribal goes to traditional faith healers/quacks (pujari&bhumkas) for treatment of illness. Skin is burnt with red hot iron rod for reducing pain known as Damma. This lead to very high under 5 children mortality (>100 per 1000 live births) especially Malnutrition related deaths and very high mortality in age group (16-60 years) & maternal mortality. Moved by such things, we started the project in Melghat in November 1997.  MAHAN Trust has dedicated its work to reduce malnutrition and mortality among women and under-five children through various programs like HBCC, MCPEPAG and SAMMAN. Below is a snapshot of our achievements in these projects aided by our generous donors.

SAMMAN (Community based Management for Severely Malnourished Children)

Aim of the Project

To reduce prevalence and death of severe malnutrition in under 5 children (SMC) (SUW & SAM) using local therapeutic food (LTF) distributed by Village Health Workers (VHWs).

Due to our efforts, we could successfully reduce the prevalence of SUW and SAM.  There were two deaths amongst treated SMCs and hence we could achieve WHO target of CFR of <4%.

Success story:-

In Keli village,   1 yr  9 month age girl  had wt. 6.785 kg & length 74 cms  and she was  in SAM & SUW due to neglect by mother. Mother was alcohol addict. She was counselled by our BCC supervisor about deaddiction. Mother was convinced and she stopped drinking alcohol.  She child was in SAMMAN from 14-6-18. The child improved to weight 7.210 kg on 25.7.2018 with >10 gm/day weight gain.

 2)  45 months  girl from Pohra village had wt. 10.270 kg  &  Ht. 79.5 cms. She was  SUW child and was included in SAMMAN on  7-6-18.  She improved to Wt. 11.950 kg on 26-7-18 and upgraded to MUW. Her wt. gain was 3.28 gm/kg/day.
