How the maternal nutrition program began?


In 2013 we left the hospital based system of providing nutrition interventions to severely malnourished children when we were able to use Ready to Use therapeutic food in the community. We quickly understood that many pregnant mothers were themselves malnourished and as a result, give birth to malnourished babies.

In 2015 and early 2016 I had the opportunity to speak on Irish National radio with Pat Kenny on Newstalk  and on national television on the Today Show. The generosity was amazing to us. With sufficient funds I went back to India in March 2016 to start our targeted nutrition program for pregnant malnourished mothers. Picture at the side
