Working Towards Treatment of Malnutrition

By Atul Lekhra | Programme Incharge

Neha, a young and cheerful 4-year-old girl, has an experience of medical care administered through Seva Mandir camps. Her father, who is an agricultural laborer takes care, alongside his wife, of Neha and her younger sister. Despite their efforts, both daughters suffer from malnutrition from combined causes of infrastructure absence and rural poverty. Neha and her sister accompany each other to Seva Mandir’s health camps, where vital care is given from nurses and our Balsakhi (women trained by Seva Mandir to provide care to children 0-5, advice Mothers, identify problems and refer cases for further treatment as appropriate).

More than 60% of children in rural and tribal areas of south Rajasthan are malnourished. Like many other infants in her village, Neha was a patient of diarrhoea caused by malnutrition through decreased nutrient absorption. She receives two daily meals from the Seva Mandir caretaker ensuring her dietary requirements are met by providing her with carbohydrates, protein, iron and other vital minerals. Neha now weighs 12 kgs, showing she is well nourished and with continuous striving from family and nurses, she will soon live a healthy and prosperous life. Her parents were also counselled on prevention of malnutrition during the camp. Had your support not been there, we would have not been able to help Neha and many more children like her. 

We are happy to share that we are participating in GlobalGiving’s September Little by Little Campaign which will last 5 days, from from September 12, 2022, at 00:00:00 EDT to September 16, 2022, at 23:59:59 EDT. All eligible donations of up to $50 USD will be matched at 50% for the duration of the campaign. Therefore, every donation will have deeper impact and will enable us to reach out to more children in need.

A contribution as small as $10 from you can support the treatment for 1 malnourished child. We do hope that you will once again extend your generous support towards less privileged children living in this part of the world.

Thank you,

Atul Lekhra & the Seva Mandir team
