The prevalence of underweight children in India is among the highest in the world, with dire consequences for mobility, mortality, productivity and economic growth. In our focus area of Maharashtra, we aim to tackle malnutrition in the state by providing nutrition supplement for children in orphanages, schools and ashram schools.
To achieve the above stated aim, Indiabulls Foundation provides Paushtik Aahar- Nutrition Supplement to 5000 underprivileged malnourished individuals every month in Mumbai, Thane, Palghar and Raigarh districts. All these individuals belong to socially and economically backward families. This includes tribal, slum, abandoned/street children and children from orphanages & rehabilitation centers. Apart from these institutions, Indiabulls Foundation also distributes Paushtik Aahar through its free mobile medical vans and charitable clinic in Panvel & Mumbai.
Paushtik Aahar is made of indigenous cereals, pulses and grains. It is a complete ready-to-use mix that does not require any cooking whatsoever. If consumed as instructed, Paushtik Aahar improves an individual's immune system considerably thus helps preventing and combating malnutrition.
