report support for 200 malnourished children

Society for Pragati Bharat is working on malnutrition in Madawara block at District Lalitpur of Bundelkhand region. Which is besicaly  inhabited by SC/ST one of the underdeveloped regions of district where Hunger and malnutrition exist on a massive scale. The overwhelming majority of people are living on staple cereal with salt and chutney. Use of pulses, vegetables and milk has declined. Many of them cannot get enough of even roti and salt to be able to fill their stomach. Many of them have only one meal a day. Such harsh conditions for a long time have led to under-nutrition,. A hunger death takes place because of chronic under nutrition and malnutrition as the weakening body becomes vulnerable to many ailments below 5 years.

Society for Pragati Bharat works to aware against malnutrition and also demonstrates them from fight against malnutrition. In last three months organization identified total 91 malnourish children (from 6 villages) below 5 years. Our volunteers listed malnourished children and counseled their parents (specially women) because Inadequate or improper education, particularly of women is often an underlying cause of malnutrition. Volunteers in every village who can measure the condition of the child and if the child is malnourished then provide training to the mothers to help child in overcoming the situation. The literacy of parents, especially of female counter part must be improved for a long term cost effective benefit in reducing infant and less than 5 years children mortality rate.

Last three months (31st Nov. 2018 to 24 Feb. 2019) we identified 91 malnourished children and taking under observation of 50 children. We make an effort to cure all children who are facing the problem of malnutrition. Organization provided them supplementary nutrition food, sanitation kit provide free medicine and care giver support, counseling & guidance support and monthly medical checkup
