The Importance of Malnutrition Awareness

Project and event background: ENDING RURAL CHILD MALNUTRITION – FIRST MEET
Kalpaka hosted the second Project event on 15th December 2021 with the same group of children, for a nutritional review. Three more children were added to the group. Many of those children lost weight within these 15 days due to sickness from bad weather conditions in Kyathanahalli.
Kalpaka provided the tokens to the parents for the next 15 days. We aim to monitor the health of these 12 children for the next 3-6 months, along with developing a stable income source for their low-income families.
