Nimal came into our unit last Thursday with severe malnutrition, normally we would need to keep him in the unit for 3 to 4 weeks.
He was discharged home on Monday with a weeks supply of eezee paste. Every week we will monitor his weight. normal recovery time is 5 to 6 weeks. One days supply of this food will cost 30 cents. We are one of the first charities in India to be using this. This will change every thing.
Meet this wonder food for malnutrition called eezee paste, It is a peanut, milk powder and sugar – ready to eat food. It has been the standard treatment for malnutrition in Africa for over 10 years. The Indian goverment are only now allowing for its use.
