Nutritional Rehabilitation Homes (NRH) for severely malnourished children. About half the children in Nepal under age five are malnourished. This is a leading cause of death in this age group. Children come with their mothers to one of our six Homes. They are so malnourished that they are close to death. In just six weeks, we restore the child to health and educate the mother in nutrition, and proper childcare. Field workers visit the village to be sure that the weight gain is being maintained.


NYOF provides proper nutrition and care to starving children while educating the mothers on how to feed their children with nutritious, locally grown food, and provide hygienic care. The mothers can return to the villages and instruct other families.

Long-Term Impact

Prevent children from dying of malnutrition, and from growing up with disabilities and mental disorders as a result of their lack of proper nutrition and care. Educate the mothers so they realize the importance of proper care and nutrition.
