Nadine Donnet, from Karuna Shechen has conducted an evaluation of the acute malnutrition status of 650 children under 5 in the six new villages: Banda, Dema village, Dema 4 tolas, Kadal, Barsudi, Chando, Nawartari, and Meghubigha tola.
This report is dedicated to the mothers of the 18 villages that Karuna-Shechen support since many years, to the army of social workers such as doctors, nurses, village coordinators, motivators, Anganwadi workers and other government functionaries engaged in this movement against child malnutrition.
This report is the collective effort from Managing Director Karuna-Shechen India, Shamsul Akhtar who made it happen, to all staff of Shechen clinic, in particular Rakesh Kumar/ village Coordinator, Rusenara/ nurse, driver Deepak who joint me on this survey. A special thanks go to Rakesh Kumar, Village Coordinator, for his dedication and precise work on selecting the children under 5 years and prepare the lists and to nurse Rusenara who measured all the children with patience and precision.
We hope this survey will serve as the basis for a joint action plan that Karuna-Shechen will adopt in order to bring about dramatic change in the nutrition profile of the children/mother of the villages.
