Story

Hello everyone, I am Sanchi Bindal and I’m currently studying in class 11 in Bal Bharati Public School. I feel fortunate to work with ‘Hamari Pahchan’. Ever since the pandemic began, I have been wanting to help the needy like the daily wage workers and the ones who lost their jobs but didn’t get a chance, and when I got to know about Hamari Pahchan, without any delay I opted to work with them.
I have chosen the cause Malnutrition.                                                                   Malnutrition is a serious condition that happens when your diet does not contain the right amount of nutrients. It means "poor nutrition" and can be referred to as undernutrition i.e., not getting enough nutrients. Malnutrition occurs when a person gets too much or too little of certain nutrients. Undernutrition occurs when they lack nutrients because they eat too little food overall. A person with undernutrition may lack vitamins, minerals, and other essential substances that their body needs to function. The nutrients involved can include calories, protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins or minerals. If malnutrition also known as undernutrition occur s during pregnancy, or before two years of age, it may result in permanent problems with physical and mental development. A lack of breastfeeding and infectious diseases such as pneumonia, malaria, and measles, which increase nutrient requirements, can also cause malnutrition may also contribute to undernourishment. Extreme undernourishment, known as starvation or chronic hunger, may have symptoms that include a short height, thin body, and swollen legs and abdomen, etc. It is caused mainly due to food prices inflation and poverty. The best way to prevent malnutrition is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. A healthy, balanced diet is vital for maintaining health and fitness. Health education should also be provided to mothers about good nutrition food hygiene and immunization of children.
I will provide them with a meal full of nutrients and provide them fruits and vegetables at least for 4-5 days or so.
Today, 690 million people around the world will go to bed on an empty stomach. But your gift means that one less child will be at risk of starvation tonight. Whether you decide to make a one-off donation or set up a monthly gift, you can change a life forever today. Often, one meal at the right time will be enough to make a difference between life and death.
EVERY LIFE MATTERS!
