As part of our program on generating awareness in the community on health and hygiene, a small program is organized with the support of our staff members. From 04.03.2021, Prime Trust is organizing an event to distribute mouth wash to all the children in Janani Home and in our Remedial Schools in Colas Nagar, Ezhil Nagar and Solai Nagar. The members of the women group from Colas Nagar also received the mouth wash. While distribution, a small session on health and hygiene was offered by our staff members.
This is supported by one of our donors who are in partnership with Prime Trust since 2012
The fact that the world produces more than enough food to feed the entire world (4 billion metric tons), and one-third of it gets wasted, leaving hundreds of millions of people hungry, is a tragedy.
High-income countries leave food on the plate, and low-and middle-income countries leave food in the field or lose it in production. This results in millions of malnourished children dying each year from a preventable cause.
Hunger and malnutrition create a self-sustaining barrier that keeps people stuck in poverty. Hunger makes it more difficult for a person to learn, work, pursue opportunities and contribute to society. It drains a person’s energy, destroys mental acuity, and exacts a heavy price on health throughout his or her life.
Beginning with under-nutrition in fetal and early life and extending to long-term health problems such as stunted physical growth, coronary heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, malnutrition exacts an enormous cost in quality and length of life.
Keeping this in mind, Prime Trust created an awareness in the community to send excess food they have during their family celebrations. We frequently receive food and it is distributed to the local community.
On Monday, the 7th of February, food was distributed to poor, unemployed women. More than 100 got food pockets.
The monthly check-up was done for the children of Janani Home, Evening Schools, and Children’s Groups. A small orientation program on health and hygiene, precautionary methods to safeguard themselves against the Covid pandemic was conducted by our residential doctor.
The check-up was done to measure their weight, height and whether the children have any contagious disease, etc., Deworming tablet, Albendazole was distributed to all the children to clear hookworms.
The details were recorded on their health card for further reference.
We are able to run the programs with the kind support of donors from GlobalGiving.
