Drinking Water Facilities
Saraswati Dalai of Oramal village in Dosinga Panchayat is happy that her family members and neighbours have easy access to drinking water due to the Foundation’s efforts of installing a handpump. Earlier, access to drinking water was a big issue for the villagers as they had to walk miles to get clean water. The Foundation gives utmost priority to solving problems of drinking water availability. Hence, it has installed 30 handpumps in eight Gram Panchayats in the region.
Ashma Khatun’s weight was 8.4 kg and Mid Upper Arm Circumference (MUAC) just 13.2 at the time of SuPoshan Sangini’s first visit to her home in Bar Basudevpur, during the baseline survey. At four years of age, she was categorised as underweight and referred to the Nutrition Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) for treatment. After the intervention, her weight increased to 10.5 kg and MUAC to 13.8. Today, Ashma’s mother is helping in convincing other parents to send their children to NRC by sharing the advantages of the treatment.
