Fight Hunger Foundation works in 450 villages in states where levels of acute malnutrition are high (15-33% for children under 3 years of age).
Programs: i) Curative and Preventive care for malnourished children. ii) Institutional strengthening through capacity building, infrastructure development and support. iii) Community Interventions for raising awareness about malnutrition, health and hygiene. iv) Research on new formulae to reduce the cost of treatment, local high density nutritional food, evidence based policy action and surveys.
