Details :In order to spread awareness on the issue of malnutrition among children, the Delhi Metro has come up with a photo exhibition at its various stations. Depicting the contrasts of happiness and abject poverty, many of the photographs on display have been clicked by underprivileged children themselves.

Titled “Click Rights”, the photos of this exhibition have been put up at twelve metro stations and it highlights the health and nutrition challenges faced by children below the age of five in the country.

The photo exhibition is part of the “Get Healthy, Give Healthy” campaign launched by Child Rights and You (CRY), a non-governmental organisation.

“The campaign focuses on children under 5 years of age and their health, education and nutrition. Growth and development is at its peak in this age-group and proper nutrition, health and a safe and stimulating environment lay the foundations for later development,” said Soha Moitra, the Regional Director, North, CRY. Anuj Dayal, Executive Director Corporate Communications, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, said, “The Delhi Metro is pleased to associate itself with the ‘Click Rights’ initiative. Children are the future of the nation. We are sure that through this campaign we will be able to benefit many children and provide them with the ideal platform to shine in their lives.”

The photo exhibition will run up to December 31 across 12 stations.
