save lives of malnourished children (6-59 months) and to ensure that GAM (Global Acute Malnutrition) rate in
the affected area is maintained below the 10% emergency threshold by improving nutritional status through provision of effective nutritional services at the community and facility level.....
When my son was admitted to SC, I and my Husband were very worried. We didn’t know what is wrong with our child, he always remains ill,” says her mother. We have consulted every doctor but after sometime he became again ill. Then there i was told about malnutrition and that a malnourished child is more prone to disease. We need food to stay alive, but also to stay strong. Without proper nutrition, our immune system is not efficient, so disease enters through germs like bacteria and can attack easily. Then a cycle begins, when we have a disease, we become malnourished more easily. But now I am confident because now my baby is healthy and I know how to save my children from malnutrition within my economic limits. Thanks to the programme like this.
She said that when i came SC i was so worried and hopeless that now my child will not survive. But there she recovered very soon. and she was also counseled about how she can manage her child health living within her economic limits at SC. She said I used to think that as I am not giving powder milk to my child so she is week. But she was discharged from Sc and referred to SFP with the impression that natural vegetables, fruit, food are best for child health and growth. And diseases can be avoid through cleanliness In SFP center extensive counseling made her concepts more clear and gave them strength. Following the instructions of Nutrition Assistant she fed her child with the Supplementary Plumpy and Multi-Micro Nutrient sachets and her health improved quickly.
