Let the New Year Bring Happiness to Everyone

Happy New Year
Happy New Year

Dear Friend,

From all of us here in Seva Mandir we wish you and your family Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the New Year bring to you lots of love, laughter, and joy.

Your generosity is bringing cheer and hope to so many. Thank you from Seva Mandir on behalf of 500,000 villagers we work with in Southern Rajasthan.

Malnutrition is the leading cause of child mortality in India. Between 40 and 50% of child deaths under the age of five are due to malnourishment. 60% of children in Seva Mandir’s work area are suffering from some form of malnutrition.

Here I would like to tell you about Seema (name changed) who was just 1 year old when she began suffering from vomiting, diarrhea and a high fever. She was brought to a community health centre where she was diagnosed as being Severely Acute Malnourished (SAM) and referred to the Seva Mandir supported Malnourishment Treatment Center (MTC) by the doctor, who advised that she be admitted as soon as possible as her condition was critical. She had not been eating properly and was losing weight.

Her mother was unaware of the devastating effects of malnutrition and thought that her daughter was suffering from a minor ailment and would recover soon. Seema was admitted weighing just over 5kg, putting her in the most critical category. She stayed at the MTC for 13 days and started showing signs of recovery soon after her treatment began. She began to eat food which was rich in energy, fat and protein. When she was discharged from the MTC after 13 days she weighed 5.4kg, could hold her head up, which she was unable to do before, and was much more active. She is now healthy and in a normal nutritional category.

This new life for Seema has only been made possible because of the support Seva Mandir receives from well-wishers like you. However, there are many more children like Seema who are still in danger and need your support.

This New Year, you can give the gift of life to a child like Meera. Afterall, it only takes $10 to support the treatment of 1 malnourished child.

We would like to thank you from the bottom of our heart for joining hands with us. Once again wish you and your family a very HAPPY NEW YEAR.

 Best Wishes, 

Atul Lekhra & the Seva Mandir Team
