We are a group of volunteers at CRY -Child Rights and You, and we are appealing to you for your support so that we can provide special fortified diet and supplementary nutrition to 100 malnourished children that we work with. With your help – we will be able to give these children the support they need to become healthy again. We hope you stand by us.
1 in every 2 children in India is malnourished. What is even more scary? Without immediate intervention – the effects of malnourishment are irreversible. Children may suffer from disability, developmental issues and death in some extreme cases.
A network of Anganwadi and ICDS centers are meant to address the nutritional needs of children suffering from malnutrition but the reality is far removed. There are many villages in our country where the Anganwadi centers do not exist or in cases where they are present - they do not have the resources to provide the nutrition that these children crucially need. This also leads to high mortality rates.
It is no wonder therefore that many children are today fighting the long term effects of malnourishment. Their lives have already been permanently affected. However, we can ensure 100 children in CRY projects - do not suffer the same fate. We can provide help for them before it is too late.
You can be the reason children can become healthy again.
