SNEH Foundation is the implementing partner of TATA Motors’ CSR health initiative ‘Arogya’. We are working together since three years to combat malnutrition in the most marginalised communities of PCMC. COMAL is a combating malnutrition initiative and it adheres to the community-based management of acute malnutrition model (CMAM) endorsed by UNICEF and WHO. In CMAM our team of community link workers (CLW) provide treatment for children with severe acute malnutrition in the home using Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic Foods (RUTF) and routine medical care. For children with moderate acute malnutrition supplementary food is provided on doorstep. Awareness related to preventive methodologies is spread in the community so that healthy children do not suffer from malnutrition.
500 severely malnourished children have been identified till date from 11 slum pockets of PCMC.
90% children have moved to healthy zone and have sustained in the last 2 years.
5000+ families indirectly impacted by conducting street plays, digital sessions, recipe sessions etc in the communities.
