Kross Launches Project ‘Paustik’ to Prevent and Mitigate Malnourishment Among Children and Lactating Mothers in Villages of North Karnataka

Published On : 20 Jan 2015   |  Reported By : Fr. Peter Brank

Bengaluru: As per statistics 50 % of the children aged between 1 to 6 years who die is due to malnourishment, which is a shame to the civil society.  Though the Government is the biggest social provider, the gap is enormous and the role of NGOs becomes imperative to fill in this gap. KROSS and Partner Organizations, BDSSS, Belgaum, BDDS Bellary & Seva Sangama, Gulbarga will endeavour to do its best to work in collaboration with Government Institutions to prevent and mitigate malnourishment among children and lactating mothers.  We need to create awareness as more than poverty the mind-set of the people needs to be changed to see that gender equity is practiced said Rev. Fr. Peter Brank, Director KROSS while addressing the launch of project “PAUSTIK”. 

Karnataka Regional Organization for Social Service in association with Kindermissionswerk, Aachen, has taken up a programme, “PAUSTIK” to create awareness on “Building Sustainable Community Resilience to mitigate Malnutrition among Children, Adolescent Girls, Pregnant Women & Lactating Mothers in 174 villages of North Karnataka”

The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Sridhar & Mr. Krishnamurthy who in very simple terms explained the cause, signs & symptoms of malnutrition and how to avail the schemes and benefits being provided by the Government through building linkages.

The welcome address was done by Mr. G. M. Varghese, the vote of thanks was proposed by Mr. Sanjeeva and the workshop was moderated by Mr. Clement Fernandes.

It is true that children who are images of God have a right to live with dignity with good nourished food, quality education, opportunities. Lets all join hands to ensure that every child enjoys these Human Rights. God bless KROSS to make a small effort in this regard.

It is really pathetic to note that 50% of Infant Mortality Rate is because of malnourishment. Prevention of such malady is possible only by creating awarness which KROSS and its partner organizations, BDSSS, Belgaum, BDDS, Bellary & Seva Sangama, Gulbarga plan to do. Such initiatives from NGOs require our kudos. Keep it up KROSS & partners. Clement Fernandes, Sunkeri / Bangalore
