Protein Powder to 350 tribal children and mothers
Over 10,000 tribal families are living in interior forest habitations of Bhadradri Kothagudem area in 149 habitations spread across 60kms radius. Many of these tribals (Gond Adivasis) had migrated from Chhattisgarh over last 30 to 40 years. Malnutrition problem is so severe that it even causes night blindness in some cases due to Vitamin A deficiency. Pre-term deliveries are also common due to the malnutrition. This was resulting in many deaths. To prevent malnutrition, Rural Hope Foundation has taken up the following initiative:
Rural Hope Foundation is providing 1.8kgs of protein powder to each child, pregnant women and lactating mother that are affected with severe malnutrition in tribal habitations. This is also known as Adivasi Horlicks. (protein powder is made with roasted Bengal gram, peanuts, wheat, jowar + jaggery powder).
