Healthy Habits Healthy Kids (H3K) is a unique program implemented in collaboration with the ICDS 2018. The program aims to reduce the deaths and morbidities among children caused due to malnutrition. When children are undernourished it affects their immunity and hampers their growth, the resistance to infections is lowered and is more susceptible to diarrheal diseases and other infections.
With the aim to reduce malnutrition-related deaths among children, supplementary nutrition and hygiene interventions are carried out at Anganwadi’s in Palghar by Safe Kids Foundation. The program, Healthy Habits Healthy Kids has trained more than 50 ICDS teachers, created awareness for 3,000 parents, 1,300 children from the Anganwadis, and schools in Palghar covered through education programs on hygiene. Over 11,000 children from Mumbai Municipal Schools underwent hygiene education and training.
The program remains of grave importance in the context of the COVID-19 crisis and has enabled children to protect themselves from the infection.
Safe Kids Foundation is responding to the emerging crisis which has affected those living in the utmost poverty, in whichever way possible. Malnourished children and families on streets, in rural and urban slums, will be the worst affected and are at the greatest risk. We need your generous support to reach out to these children and families from challenged backgrounds.
