This is Ragini. Ragini is one year old and weighs six pounds. We admitted Ragini for six days over which time we began nutritional supplements. After that time Ragini was much improved and was able to go home with Eezee paste to continue the good work.
I have been away for a few days. when i came back yesterday Imran was admitted. 4 short months old and less than 5 pounds weight. he is very sick. Today he will have a blood transfusion. Why, I continually ask myself the question, does this still happen in our world?
These twins were admitited to our unit five days ago when they were less than a day old. They were critically ill with blood poisoning and were turned away from two Government hospitals because they had no money for medicine. Somehow they found us and our doors were wide open. your support is there hope. “Life matters to everyone”
Eye to eyes. We found little Shanti two weeks ago at a camp 150 kilometres away. She was very sick suffering from a very bad infection in her lungs. She was born with cleft pallet and is severely malnourished. Another charity will do the surgery for free when we have made her strong enough. Her father weighs her every day and yesterday proudly told me that every day Shanti gains 15 precious grams, little ounces of life given back.
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.
This is Ag, he is 11 months old and weighs 5 1/2 lbs and is severely malnourished. We have started nutritional supplements and oral medicines. We have performed a chest x-ray, blood tests and urines tests but the family do not acknowledge that Ag is unwell. They think he is normal and give him milk and fruit. We are trying to get the family to agree to admit him for 4 or 5 days.
This is Babu, his family are from Bihar Chand. They went to a hospital locally but they were unable to treat him so he was referred to Dr Singh. Dr Singh diagnosed Babu with Meningitis and has been treating him.
Baby Maha Laxmi Ag is 7 months old. He weighs 9 pounds and has breathing problems and diarrhea. The family took the baby to a doctor but there was no improvement so they brought the baby in to see Dr Singh. Dr Singh administered oxygen and has tried to stabilise the baby’s blood sugar and given antibiotics and Baby Maha Laxmi Ag has improved.
