Maharashtra has a high rate of malnourishment, with nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 caused by undernourishment. The problem is particularly severe in rural areas, where socio-economic challenges exacerbate the issue. To address this, United Way Mumbai has partnered with the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) to launch Project Poshan, aimed at combatting malnutrition in both rural and urban communities.
It is time for action and we appeal you to partner with us.
Together, we can stop children suffering due to lack of food and nutrition, and fight the occurrence of deaths due to malnutrition in communities so close to Mumbai.
Moreover, a critical child from Damsewadi village, Khandas bit was provided urgently required medical support by quick referral to the Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre in Sub-district Hospital, Karjat by the Poshan team. Click on the update to know Bala’s story.
