Story


'We cannot help everyone but everyone can help someone'

 
I am Harshit from Narnaul, Haryana currently pursuing B.Com (hons.) degree from Kirori Mal College, University of Delhi. I am working with Hamari Pahchan NGO to fight against the problem of malnutrition for the betterment of the society. In our organization, we strive on building a society, where no child is deprived, no woman is unsafe and no one is denied an opportunity to showcase his talent.
Hamari Pahchan is a non-governmental organization, striving and working to make Delhi safer and happier place to live. It provides a platform to the deserving people from the society, to create their own identity and carve out niche for themselves.
The organization has been up and running for the past 5 years. With collaboration and support of the Delhi police, School Teachers, Advocates, experienced Doctors and especially the school and college youth, the organization has come a long way with now over 5000 active members working relentlessly to support the cause.

Adequate nutrition is vital to individuals’ good health and to social and economic development of communities and nations. Reducing malnutrition is particularly effective in saving lives and can contribute to increasing the gross domestic product (GDP) per capita by up to 11 points.
Malnutrition perpetuates a cycle of poverty and inequalities. Individuals suffering from malnutrition in their childhood have learning disabilities, more health problems throughout their lives, lower income when they are adults and malnourished children. At the core of multiple problems, the fight against malnutrition is essential to achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
India is among those countries in the world with the highest recorded numbers of undernourished and malnourished people. As the country aspires to fulfill its economic and social development goals this problem requires immediate attention.
Malnutrition: Malnutrition is a consequence of poor quality or insufficient quantity of nutrient intake or the body’s poor absorption of nutrients. There are three main types of malnutrition:
Under nutrition (chronic or severe) : chronic under nutrition in children means that they are too short for their age. This is referred to as stunted growth. Severe under nutrition means that children are underweight for their age. This is referred to as emaciation.
Micronutrient deficiency refers to insufficient intake of vitamins and minerals. In the area of public health, the most concerning deficiencies are those in vitamin A, iron and iodine. 
Excess weight and obesity are linked with overeating, which can lead to diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular conditions
The health risk caused by unbalanced diet is greater than the risks caused by unprotected sexual relations, drugs and tobacco combined (Global Panel on Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition - GLOPAN, 2016).
There is an urgent need to invest in the infrastructure of ICDS and the Anganwadi centers as well as improving their coverage. There is also a need to address gaps and inefficiencies in the present setup through public awareness, community engagement and empowerment, while such an intervention would assist the community in realising their rights and entitlements, and then act as a deterrent to inefficiencies and gaps, it would also help in developing community-based solutions to malnutrition, unburdening the stressed public healthcare and ICDS infrastructure.
While government agencies are working with all their might to fight malnutrition, NGOs too are playing a key role in giving lakhs of children the nutrition they deserve. The problem of malnutrition in India is severe. Work by all stakeholders at various levels to be addressed efficiently. Donate to NGO to help children get a healthy start in life. You can be a ray of hope for children and help them provide a happier and healthier tomorrow.
