Sponsor nutritious food to provide strength to children with HIV to undergo treatment

Impact

A nutrition bundle that helped Sateesh find the strength to be a normal child

Sateesh is the only son of his parents. Both his parents were HIV positive. Due to this, Sateesh was born HIV positive. He lost his parents to this dreaded disease at the tender age of 9. He then began to live with his aged grandmother.

His grandmother cares for him a lot. However, she does not earn enough to feed Sateesh the right kind of food that he needs to fight the disease.

Priyadarshini Seva Mandali's outreach workers identified Sateesh during one of his hospital visits. He was very sick and was even unable to walk. His CD4 count was dangerously low. A person is diagnosed with HIV if their CD count is less than 200 as against a healthy range of 500-1500 in healthy people.

Priyadarshini Seva Mandali enrolled him in the monthly rations program. He receives a monthly nutrition bundle that is planned to give him the nutrition that he needs to withstand the strong HIV treatment. They also provide travel expenses for them to visit the center to collect the monthly rations.

This nutritional support and the guidance of PSM has helped Sateesh a lot. His health condition has improved a lot with the regular nutritious food.

Sateesh is now healthy enough to carry on his regular activities like a child. His grandmother is pleased that she can feed him a good meal every day.

You can also help needy children with HIV with the nutrition to withstand the intense treatment. You can donate so that organizations like Priyadarshini Seva Mandali can bring help to patients who deserve it. You can give with confidence because every program listed is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

Priyadarshini Seva Mandali runs a program to provide underprivileged orphaned HIV positive children with adequate nutrition to help them withstand the intense medical treatment and help them through recovery.

Donations to this program will contribute to a fund that will cover the cost of te monthly ration bundles given to the children.

Most of the children supported by this program are orphaned and are cared for by their grandparents or other guardians.

Priyadarshini Seva Mandali's outreach workers identify the children who need support from the government hospitals where they come for their CD4 test every month. Alternatively, they are also referred to by other nonprofits.

The outreach workers check the hospital records and prepare a list of the impoverished children. They then reach out to the guardians and invite them to Priyadarshini Seva Mandali's office. The children are then enrolled in the program. As a part of the program, PSM provides them with nutritious food. Priyadarshini Seva Mandali also refunds the travel expenses to and from the organization.

A ration bundle adequate to cover all nutritional requirements is handed over to the child's guardian. The children continue to receive the ration bundle every month. Additionally, new children get enrolled in the program as and when they pay their first visit to the hospital.

The contents of the ration bundle include

1 kg of groundnut

1.5 kgs of chickpeas

1.5 kgs of red gram

1 kg of Jaggery

1 kg of cooking oil

1 kg of millet (Ragi) powder

4 to 6 kgs of rice

2 kgs of idli mix

2 kgs of broken wheat (dalia)

A variety of spices

They also receive cash for vegetables and 3 liters of milk every month.

At present, close to 150 destitute children are enrolled in the program.

When you donate to this program, you help children affected with HIV get access to adequate nutrition and support their recovery.
