FULL-Fight Undernourishment Little by Little aims at giving 18,000 children a healthy, wholesome future, by activating healthcare centres, providing nutrition supplements and building health-awareness amongst women and children in India.
Shaheen, Sahiba, Shameem and Soni are among 13 severely malnourished girls in Dhannipur, a village in Varanasi. They weigh so little and are so weak that even a cold is fatal.
If they do live, the long-term ill effects last for life. Stunted growth, brittle bones, disease-prone and worst of all, them giving birth to unhealthy babies. What they need is the right dietary supplements at the right time, so they can tip the scales and be healthy again. So they can have a wholesome future.
Mohammed Idrish was forced to make the toughest choice of his life. Selling his loom, his only means of earning four square meals, to afford the health care his son Sahabuddin so desperately needed. Sahabuddin, aged two, weighed a measly six kilos, but carried the weight of poverty, hunger and deprivation on his little shoulders. The loom fetched Mohammed some extra money. But it didn’t last very long. And neither did his son. Unable to sustain themselves, several other weavers in Dhannipur face similar fate. What they need is the health care they are entitled to, so their children can lead full lives.
