Know How We Help Malnourished Kids Of Madhya-Pradesh | Fight Hunger Foundation

As well as being India’s second largest state, with a population of 72 million, Madhya Pradesh, is also one of India’s poorest states. Levels of severe acute malnutrition amongst young children are dangerously high, for many reasons: insufficient access to food and clean water; unhealthy environments; and low awareness of important childcare practices, such as the importance of breastfeeding in the fight against malnutrition.

Fight Hunger Foundation currently works in Dhar district and exited its program in Burhanpur in December 2017.

FHF Work at Burhanpur

Fight Hunger Foundation / Action Against hunger worked in Burhanpur district of Madhya Pradesh from 2011 to 2017. Lying on the southernmost region of Madhya Pradesh and bordering Maharashtra, Burhanpur presented a high prevalence of malnutrition among children under 5 years of age.

The state of Madhya Pradesh is home to a large tribal population and various unique cultures. Although tribals account for over 20% of the total population of the state, most of these tribes are characterised by low income, and low literacy rates.
