India's only NGO specialising in malnutrition
  • Crisis: 20% of Indian children under 5 years of age (~6 million per annum) suffer from acute malnutrition. Only 1% have access to services that can save them. One million children die in India every year due to severe acute malnutrition. 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.
  • Outcome: FHF has touched over 311,000 lives. During Aug 2012 to Mar 2015, FHF screened 42,000 children for malnutrition, treated 5,500 severely malnourished, educated 186,000 people and conducted 155 training sessions for health workers. They plan to reach 1.15 million people, including 160,000 children by end-2018.
