Raising Funds For

India has made considerable progress in tackling hunger and undernutrition in the past two decades, yet this pace of change has been uneven, and many have been left behind. Among the poorest people in India are those who belong to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, traditionally oppressed communities, who continue to be subject to endemic discrimination and are often disadvantaged because of the areas in which they live.

These communities have limited access to health services, clean drinking water and sanitation facilities, which leads to rampant anaemia in women and acute malnutrition in children. These are critical indicators of children’s health and if not addressed urgently, there will soon emerge a generation of children who are not growing up to their full potential and capabilities.

With funds raised from the marathon, we will seek to contribute to the prevention of maternal and child mortality, through improving the nutritional and health indicators of pregnant and lactating women (PLW) and children up to five years old. The geographical areas of intervention will be in the slum pockets of Mumbai and Jaipur. The focus will be on the First 1000 days of Life, which is a critical time when good nutrition matters most: during the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy through to a child’s second birthday, adequate nutrition has long-lasting impact on a child’s chances for survival, as well as on long-term health and development.

Fund Utilization in 2018

Total funds raised in 2018 - INR 1053000

Project NameCommunity Management of Acute Malnutrition in the Urban Slums of Govandi
Amount Utilized (INR)1053000
Project DescriptionThis project will support the community residing in the pockets of Umerkhadi, Sathe Nagar and Transit camp in the slums of Govandi, particularly the most vulnerable members of the population: children under 5 years of age, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.

Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) is a method for treating acute malnutrition in young children using a case-finding and triage approach. Malnourished children are identified within communities, and then the majority of them are able to be rehabilitated at home.

When screening for malnutrition, Community Health Workers measure the Mid Upper Arm Circumference (MUAC) of children with a colour-coded tape. Children displaying signs of malnutrition are referred to our treatment centres for further assessment and treatment. At our treatment centre, an FHF doctor or nurse measures the child’s weight and height. The “weight for height” ratio is calculated and compared to that of a healthy child to determine whether the child is moderately or severely malnourished.
Treatment is dependent on the severity of the case, however most children with Severe Acute Malnutrition can be provided with a 8 weeks course of therapeutic food to be given at home, whilst receiving weekly follow-on support from local health workers.
LocationsMumbai City > Maharashtra (MH)
CausesHealth > Nutrition
ImpactAs a result of the funds raised from the Tata Mumbai Marathon 2018, Fight Hunger Foundation will be able to achieve the following outcomes in the urban slum area of Govandi.
- 3500 active screening of children under the age of 5 years using mid upper arm circumference (MUAC) tape and bilateral pitting oedema.
- 50 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition treated with therapeutic food and essential medicines
- 200 children suffering from moderate acute malnutrition detected, counselled and referred to anganwadi centers
- 150 pregnant women counselled and referred for PNC services.

- Education and information sessions provided to 550 pregnant and lactating women, caretakers of malnourished children and men
- 65000 beneficiaries supported through community mobilisation activities such as demonstration sessions, street plays, celebration of health and nutrition days in the community.

As a support to the government and ensuring long term sustainability, anganwadi workers and supervisors were trained on different aspects of Health and Nutrition
