Maternal Child Health Nutrition & Adolescent Health

Improving Maternal Child Health Nutrition & Adolescent Health has been an integral part of Sukarya’s mission since 1998. A comprehensive approach is adopted for each of our projects, as nutritional issues are not just about lack of food and resources but also about lack of access, knowledge, information, dietary habits, socio-cultural dynamics, and gender aspects.

Working on both demand and supply verticals to ensure effective results, it adopts community friendly approaches and strategies like participatory planning, involvement of men and significant others, involving key community stakeholders, using visual display tools, simple medication and home cooked food, rigorous follow-up, modified traditional practices, couple counselling, referrals, partnering with government and providing prompt solutions to individuals.

Meera says – Food and Nutrition is the most powerful tool to change the current world situation that has happened because of the pandemic. It is absolutely essential to avoid hunger crisis, malnutrition and other related aftereffects. It is our foremost priority to tackle hunger and malnutrition right now especially due to the pandemic. Organizations involved in the social development sector, funding agencies and corporates should be involved in the delivery of services with a strong sense of duty and work in a time-bound and accountable manner.

Let us pledge to commit, collaborate and contribute  to fight hunger and malnutrition right now to avoid to the  a humanitarian crisis.
