  1. Almost 1/3rd of the world's malnourished children are in India.
  2. Nearly 40% of Indian children are undernourished.
  3. Close to 9.2 Lakh children in India are severely malnourished
  4. Less than 10% receive an adequate diet.

Most of the children that need help are spread out in small clusters across hard to reach remote locations. The problem is further accentuated by Covid-19 restrictions, further reducing their access to health and nutrition services.

It's time to TAKE ACTION!
