I am sure many of you must have read in newspapers or seen on various TV channels, the news about death of many children in tribal areas due to malnourishment. To curb this to some extent since November 2013 our Rotary Club Of Kalyan Riverside are doing the project for malnourished children in tribal area of Murbad in Thane district. This project is being executed under guidance of child development officer of Thane District Collector and government of Maharashtra. Currently we have adopted 150 malnourished children from tribal areas of Murbad tehsil in Thane district of Maharashtra. Every month we provide them nutritious food supplements like dates, chikki of crushed nuts & rajgira and also tonic bottles. We monitor their health and weight every month. I am pleased to share the good news with you that due to our continuous efforts most of the children have gained weights in the range of 500 gms to 2500 gms and are in quite good health. In next phases we have ambitious plans to adopt 500 malnourished children. Dear friends to adopt 500 children and provide them nutritional food supplements we require large amount of funds. On an average per child we have to spend Rs 250 per month for at least one year so as to keep him / her healthy. In view of the same for 500 children we will require funds in the range of 10-15 lacs. The funds will be used to buy nutritious food supplements like dates, chikki of crushed nuts and rajgira and also tonic bottles. I I request you to donate for this noble cause and save the lives of many malnourished children.
