This Children’s Day, we want you to meet 4 little angels. They belong to The Foundation of Mother and Child (FMCH) powered by GiveIndia, an NGO that encourages preventative health, balanced nutrition and child developmental practices in underprivileged communities.
This is little Kinjal. She has been a part of FMCH since she was 2 months old. She was malnourished under all three parameter (stunting, wasting, underweight). FMCH was quick to identify ineffective breastfeeding as one of the main causes. Extensive counseling and support to this family by FMCH ensured improvement in her nutritional status and today she is healthy and full of life.
Say hello to baby Sanskruti. Her father is patiently waiting for his turn at the FMCH center to find out how his daughter is doing. FMCH encouraged her father’s participation in the First 1,000 Days intervention to bring in a positive behaviour change in their feeding practices.
Here, Pallavi is enjoying a massage during one of the Achha Bachha sessions. FMCH has designed these sessions specifically focusing on child development and encourage mother-child bonding. The mother shared that Pallavi started sitting up and walking much faster compared to other children in her neighbourhood since she started following the guidance provided by FMCH.
This is baby Sarthak. He grabbed the most colorful book at FMCH clinic while his mother is being counseled on complementary feeding.
There are many more little angels like these and they need your support. So, think no more and donate with Freecharge. We promise you’ll brighten up their lives and create a country full of little innocent smiles.
