WHY DO WE DO IT?

That good health cannot be attained solely through medical interventions has been an important guiding principle of the model we’ve based our work on thus far. Nutrition outcomes, especially, are deeply intertwined with health outcomes, so much so that good health cannot hardly be achieved without good nutrition.

Take a hypothetical example of a 5 year old malnourished child with an acute case of diarrhea (one of the major causes of under-5 mortality in India which often only requires adequate hydration and nutrition for full recovery). Many lower SES families in India stop feeding the child food or water at the very onset of diarrhea assuming that it would help stop the illness. This worsens the health status of the child leading to the child being brought at a critical stage several days later to the hospital where the parents would have to incur large bills. Often even hospitalized care is not enough at this stage leading to the child succumbing to the disease. This could have all been prevented if the child was properly nourished,  the family had a sanitary latrine, the parents were educated on the do’s and don’ts and the family had been empowered to source and prepare clean, hygienic meals and drinks. Noteworthy is that none of these involve medical interventions of any sort. Needless to say, our nutritional outreach programs have been as important to us as our medical camps.

Our nutrition program provides wholesome meals to the destitute in care homes and targeted catch-up nutrition using supplements for individuals who are identified to be at-risk for malnutrition (macro or micro-nutrient deficiencies).

Food is a basic necessity for all humans. Unfortunately, it still remains elusive to a large section of our population who go hungry everyday. Help us combat this problem by supporting us.
