You can save the lives of 40 malnourished children

Palghar district in Maharashtra - a mere 90 km away from Mumbai - is facing a severe nutrition crisis. The number of child deaths due to malnutrition has sharply increased in recent months, with as many as 209 deaths between April and August 2016.

Fight Hunger Foundation is one of the few NGOs in India who work specifically with children with acute malnutrition. We provide them therapeutic food that restores their health within six to eight weeks.

Our aim in Palghar is to ensure no child dies of hunger. We started our program in September 2016  and have now opened two outpatient clinics to screen, detect and treat these children. Through this campaign we aim to raise Rs. 2,00,000 and save the lives of at least 40 children in Palghar, who are currently at the risk of dying due to severe acute malnutrition.

It only takes Rs. 5000/- to provide therapeutic food and provide live-saving treatment to a child. During the treatment, therapeutic food is given to the child for about six-eight weeks which restores his/her digestive system and takes care of his/her nutritional need to help the child recover soon. We ensure that the child does not fall back to this debilitating state by doing regular follow-ups. A take home ration (that includes Pulses, Oil, Wheat, Rice, Sugar) is given to the child after the treatment to ensure he/she stays healthy soon after the treatment.


A child is given 2-3 sachets of therapeutic food per day for 6 weeks for complete recovery

Our brand ambassador and legendary musician, Sonu Nigam has recorded a song especially for us about our fight to end hunger in India.

In his words, “I can no longer just stand by, while millions of India’s children die of hunger. My new song “HopeInTheFuture” is dedicated to Fight Hunger Foundation. They fight every day for the day when no child in India dies of hunger. I know that if we come together to fight hunger, this day will come soon.”

We now look upon you to join us in this fight and save the lives of these children and promise them a healthy and happy future.

With your help we are convinced we can achieve this goal.

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Fight Hunger Foundation! We hope you are doing very well.

Through your kind donation on milaap.org in the past, we have been able reach out to many malnourished children and provide them life-saving treatment. We thank you immensely for the same.

As we gear up for the summers to stay hydrated and healthy, there are many malnourished children in rural Rajasthan who do not have access to clean drinking water and nutritious food. These children are at risk of dying. We need to take urgent action today to prevent them from sliding into tragedy.

Our field team is working tirelessly to ensure that no child dies due to malnutrition. But we cannot do this alone. We need your help to save lives.
