Spread the Joy of Giving This Holiday Season

Proper nutrition is crucial in the early years of a child’s life. Without it, their health and development will suffer, not only physically and developmentally but also socially, emotionally, and educationally.

Malnutrition is a significant concern in India, home to 33% of the world’s malnourished children. In the Tansa Valley, where PRASAD serves many low-income families, malnutrition rates are even more startling at 67%.

Tackling the problem requires a multi-faceted approach. PRASAD Chikitsa’s Nutrition Program helps to mitigate and prevent childhood malnutrition by providing children milk and nutritious snacks. Children receive regular check-ups and are measured against World Health Organization growth standards.

Meet Dviti, a baby girl from a village in the Tansa Valley. Her parents are farmers and faced challenges meeting their newborn’s nutritional needs. However, the family’s journey took a positive turn when they enrolled in PRASAD Chikitsa’s Nutrition Program at the local Anganwadi (preschool). The family is grateful for the vital nutritional support that played a crucial role in maintaining their now eight-month-old daughter’s healthy developmental growth.

Dviti’s mother said, “My Dviti enjoys the milk and snacks provided by PRASAD that are essential for her growth during her early years.”

During the holiday season, we show gratitude for our blessings by giving to others. In this season of giving, your gift to PRASAD can help ensure that children like Dviti receive proper nutrition, allowing them to grow and thrive.

Our goal is to raise $20,000. Just $110 can support one child for an entire year. And here’s the best part: Your donation will have double the impact! The PRASAD Board of Trustees is matching donations up to $10,000.

Your contribution can light up a child’s life this holiday season. Let’s come together to nurture a healthier, happier future for these children.

Warm Regards,
