Ruby gets a happy and healthy life

Ruby was born underweight and regularly suffered from acute diarrhoea. When an eight-month-old toddler was brought to the Gurgaon day care centre of Mobile Creches, she weighed only 5kgs. She was suffering from grade III malnutrition. The staff put her on a special diet and she was kept under the watchful eye of the MC staff. Slowly, she started gaining weight and making some recovery. This also helped her mother understand the importance of good nutrition and basic hygiene. Today, at 1 year and 4 months old, she maintains a normal weight of a child her age and weighs around 8kgs.

21% of India's children are severely underweight. Your donation can provide basic nutrition to these children in need. Donate with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Mobile Creches' (MC) runs a day-care program for children of migrant labourers working in construction sites across Delhi NCR (Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Noida). The centres focus on health, nutrition and education of these children.

The nutrition program provides fresh balanced diet to the children. Each centre on an average has 60 children a year of which 70% are severely malnourished when they come to the centre for the first time. With the nutrition program, MC strives to bring them back to normal health. The day-care centre provides them three meals a day, including breakfast, lunch and a snack before going home. The meals are nutritionally dense comprising mainly of khichdi, dalia etc.

Malnourished children are further provided with supplementary nutrition of eggs and bananas. For those more severely malnourished (Grades 3 and 4), the frequency of feeding is increased by 3-4 times a day with a special low-cost, locally made, ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF) of rice, wheat and chickpea (chana).

Staples like cereals and pulses are supplied by MC to the day-care centres. Perishable items like milk, fruits and vegetables are purchased locally by the centre staff to ensure freshness. The food is cooked in each centre by a trained staff, which is also trained for teaching these kids.

Mobile Creches do monthly assessment of the outcomes through a growth-monitoring exercise to ensure proper implementation of their initiative. One of the studies conducted by them have found out that 75% of children in the age-group 0-3 years and 73% of children in the age-group 3-6 years have either retained or come up to normal nutritional grade if stayed with MC for at least six months.
