Hello ! This is Divyanshi. As we all know, malnutrition is a major problem of our country. It is a problem which is caused due to a diet that contains either insufficient or too much of nutrients as a result of which health problems arise. Malnutrition increases the risk of contracting numerous infections. As per the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), 14.5% of India’s population is undernourished. Over 33 lakh children in India are malnourished and more than half of them fall in the severely malnourished in some states.
Many among the population live in poverty and are not able to obtain as much food as they need. In India, 44% of children under the age of 5 are underweight. 52% of married women and 72% of infants have anemia. It is definitely a complex and multi-dimensional issue. And what we can do to help them is to let them have some good and nutritious food. Humanity is helping others at times when they need that help the most.
According to a report, 68% of deaths in children under 5 years of age, in India, is due to malnutrition. You can save some lives by joining us to eradicate hunger from India.
You can also come forward and donate a small amount of money. Every donation would be significant for those who need your help. So I as a volunteer of NGO Hamari Pahchan would request you to contribute toward making the difference and help them.
