HEALTH CHECKUP AND NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT
Free health checkup for children in Saradapali/Ghatikia slum areas in Bhubaneswar. Our investigation has shown that half of the children in our slum are underweight. Most of the parents are daily workers. Lack of knowledge, time and finance are the major reasons for malnutrition. Malnutrition will give lasting negative effect on the childs physical and mental development. Malnutrition has a negative effect on school performance and health status later in life.
We improve the health of children through nutritional interventions like fruit, snacks and meals in the tuition center, awareness projects targeting the parents and education.
