We work to reduce the incidence of Malnutrition in remote villages block Madawara of district Lilitpur bundel khand of Uttar Pradesh. Many children in district never make it past their fifth birthday falling victim to malnutrition, diarrhea and childhood illness. A cycle of poverty, illness and death occurs this region.We identified malnourished children from these villages.Their families can't afford treatment of these children. Last three years we helped 920 children to get proper nutrition.
Madawara block is one of the backward block of district lalitpur. The ST/SC community which is the most vulnerable community in the Bundelkhand region is habitat here, prioritizes economic development over health care. Low literacy rate, poor economic status, money crisis and migration are a few other tribulations that are encountered by them. Socio economic condition of the people is poor. They are hardly able to afford 2 meals a day. thus causes anemia and malnutrition in children.
Organization identified and adapt highly malnourished children from remote villages for providing supplementary nutrition. Support provided to the community for providing supplementary nutrition to children through active involvement of members. We also provide Health kit containing material of basic health care needs such as nail cutter, sieves, ladle, first aid, chlorine tablets, soap and other minor equipment like thermometer to the poor families especially those who are below poverty line.
The project will be improved the Nutritional status of children and decreased Malnutrition and Anemia from the communities. Low birth weight in babies will be reduced. Health seeking behavior will promote and create demand to access especially health services by the women and adolescents for the children in all the villages. Your donation will improve the nutritional and health status of children which will help to lay the proper foundation of physical and social development of the child.
