Vimukti organized nutrition awareness
program under “Health for all” project on 14th of July, 2018.
Malnutrition amongst women is one of the prime causes of low
birth-weight babies and poor growth. Low birth weight is a
significant contributor to infant mortality. Moreover, low birth
weight babies who survive are likely to suffer growth retardation
and illness throughout their childhood, adolescence and into
adulthood, and growth-retarded adult women are likely to carry on
the Preventing under-nutrition has emerged as one of the most
critical challenges in recent times. Though various schemes are
introduced by the government, yet failed to reach to the
beneficiaries. Therefore VCT has been conducting nutrition program
in our project area and helping women and children to get maximum
benefit from these schemes. Nearly 98 women attended and benefited
from this program.
