Fight Hunger Foundation - Saving Lives Of Malnourished Children

               Donate to Save Lives of Children in Palghar

As you may have seen recently in the news, a severe malnutrition crisis has hit the tribal district of Palghar, in Maharashtra. The number of child deaths due to malnutrition has sharply increased over recent months. Over 200 hundred children have died of severe acute malnutrition since April this year. Worse still, around 18,000 children have died in Maharashtra in the last one year due to acute malnutrition.

Fight Hunger Foundation is an NGO registered under section 25 of the Companies Act in Mumbai. We have been responding to the crisis and have set up a field office in Palghar, where our expert team is working round the clock to detect and treat malnutrition and save the lives of the children in danger.

Our staff screening and detecting children suffering from acute malnutrition.


Our goal is to save the lives of 1,800 children suffering from severe malnutrition by providing them with therapeutic treatment. Equally important is our activity of screening of over 5000 children to ensure they get timely treatment and are referred to the local health centers.

The situation of children in Palghar is serious. We urgently need your help to reach as many children as possible – we cannot let any more children die of hunger.

Please come forth and support our work in this emergency situation which will help us save thousands of lives and enable India’s children to look forward to a brighter future. 

We assure you that your entire contribution will be used towards our life saving activities there and we will send you regular updates on the programs.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Fight Hunger Foundation!

We would like to thank you immensely for helping us raise Rs.3,42,270/- through this campaign on milaap.org, and helped us provide life-saving treatment to hundreds of malnourished children in Palghar.

Thanks to your support and the funds raised, we have successfully inaugurated two outpatient treatment centres in Palghar and are already seeing many mothers and children come over for treatment and for attending our community awareness sessions.

You will be happy to know that over 400 acutely malnourished children have already enrolled in our program in the past three months and are on their way to recovery. None of this would be possible without you.

Our endeavour is to respond to every single severe humanitarian crises. Our cadre of trained experts on the field deliver world-class programs that include detection and treatment of children suffering from acute malnutrition. This is compounded by extensive education to pregnant women, lactating mothers and some men’s groups on health and nutrition.

Until we are no longer needed—we will be fighting hunger, working with communities and local partners to build resilience, and doing everything in our power to leave no one behind.

Thank you once again for supporting us in our fight against hunger in Palghar. 

Please feel free to call us or better still visit us and see for yourself the difference you have made in the community, bringing hope and smiles on their face.

With warm regards,
Team Fight Hunger Foundation
