To recover lost health during the pandemic, as well as to ensure the population remains resilient in the future, sustainable nutrition is crucial.
Malnutrition in children is a serious health hazard in a developing country like India.
Recently, a report by The Hindu has brought to my attention that 31.4% of Indian children will be stunted by 2022. When a child under five dies, malnutrition is a root cause nearly half of the time. In States like Bihar (48%) and Uttar Pradesh (46%), almost one in two children are stunted, while it is only one in five children in Kerala and Goa (20% each). There are high rates of stunting among children in the poorest wealth quintile (51.4%), Scheduled Tribes (43.6%) and Scheduled Castes (42.5%), and children born to mothers with no education (51%). Those who are either undernourished or are obese, underperform in various aspects of life, missing out an opportunity to become productive members of society. As India aspires to fulfill its economic and social development goals, malnutrition is one area that requires greater attention. 

Wherever food is free and in plenty, people take more than what they can eat. Those fortunate to have surplus food forget the plight of those who do not have enough to eat. Millions of people die of malnutrition and hunger in India. Starvation deaths in some parts of the country are now new. The Global Hunger Index, 2019 places India at 102 among 117 countries, indicating a serious level of hunger. Despite considerable industrial and economic growth and self-reliance in foodgrain production, India is unable to provide enough food to a large number of people, especially women and children. Food wastage adds to the woes. In India, 50kg of food per person per year is wasted on an average. Household food waste accounts for 68.7 million tonnes a year. Millions die in starvation and malnutrition while the food which can actually feed them is getting wasted. This kind of imbalance must be balanced!
Therefore, I, Subhiksha, a Volunteer at Hamari Pahchan NGO has started this campaign to feed every human that I can. My goal is to let everyone have a meal before they sleep.

Recently, through a survey, it has brought to my attention that HUNGER is a major problem. So, I have decided to help them with the monthly distribution of Ration/Meals

Basic necessities for 1 family: Rs.2199/-
Basic necessities for 10 families: Rs.21990/-
Basic necessities for 35 families: Rs.76965/-

Ration for 1 family includes:
( Three types of Pulses, Rice, Atta, Eggs, Tea, Sanitary Pads, Soap, Shampoo, Cloth, and Utensils washing powder)

No amount is big or small, it's the contribution that matters! You can donate for a one time meal i.e. Rs.50/-

We rise by lifting others! 

A little that you give will make a big difference in their life. Do Support and Be the Change you wish to see in this world! DONATE even if it is a small one, HEAL others with your help!!!  

Thank you!
