We thank all our supporters for donating in our campaign to save the malnourished children. 

During the months of September and October, 2014, 79 Severe and Acute Malnourished (SAM) children have been admitted in NRCs in Vaishali and Dharbhanga districts, Bihar, India.                                                                        These districts have a large number of underprivileged communities. We are trying to include the children who are suffering from malnutrition.

The steps to cure a malnourished child:

  • Feeding of admitted SAM  child (As per protocol); Feed Preparation for admitted mothers; Provision of food to mother;
  • Administration of Medication: Albendazole, Vitamin– A, IFA, Zinc, Folic Acid, Magsulf, Potclor; Administration of Medication: Antibiotics,  Immunization etc.; Child friendly games and puzzles
  • Statistical analysis of: Follow up data extracted from community level. Comparative analysis of target weight status of last batches.

 

Following these steps, children who have achieved the target weight of 15% when discharged are asked to come for 4 follow ups to check if they are healthy or have they started losing weight.

We also have done Capacity building of mothers and family on health, hygiene and nutrition in both NRC.
