By Mayank Jain | Manager Marketing & Communication

We thank all our supporters for donating towards our campaign to save the lives of malnourished children. 

During the three months (1st May 2015 to 31st  July 2015), 55 malnourished children were admitted (29 Boys and 26 Girls). In this particular period, we have successfully discharged 37 children. We make an effort to cure all children who are facing the problem of 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.



 

By 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.
