Poshan – Simple but important step towards being healthy
For SPANDAN children who are registered in the ART Centre, a nutritional supplement program called Poshan was started in August 2018 with support from Bal Asha Trust Mumbai and Decimal Foundation, Mumbai. The children and their siblings (without HIV) are provided 30 packets each month of tasty biscuits, snacks and porridge to be given to them by their caregivers each day. Their medical and growth parameters are being monitored regularly by LMF to assess the outcome of this project.
Packages are being distributed regularly each month to 50 to 60 children under this program.
