BABY’S DAY OUT
The 1st Delivery was completed on August 2nd, 2020, after the first Covid wave died down. The first supply of ragi and supplements were given to mothers and children of Kashinagar slum A & B by our scout Hilda and her team. This small team has been following up diligently every month. The good news is that we have received good support for this particular project, unfortunately Covid saw a lot of families moving to their native village and hence the continuity was lost. The team was planning to take this program to few other slums. This may go into full swing after COVID.
Mothers of children below 12 months were provided with Calcium tablets supply for a month. Each child was given 1kg ragi supply each for a month
NOTE: THIS IS AN ONGOING PROJECT. WE HOPE TO CONTINUE IT IN OTHER SLUMS WHERE MOTHERS AND INFANTS NEED NUTRITION.WE REQUIRE ABOUT RS 2000/- [FOR 6 INFANTS AND THIER MOTHERS FOR 3 MONTHS]. FEEL FREE TO DONATE TO “BABYS DAY OUT”
ORIGINAL POST :
Our team had visited Kashinagar slum in Bengaluru [both Part A and Part B] to distribute dry rations. Our Scout Hilda found emaciated babies in both slums and decided to take a survey of babies aged between 6-15 months on 14th June, 2020. Volunteers were Hilda, Bibi and Maria. In Kashinagar A slum: 2 babies, 2 mothers and in Kashinagar B slum: Bindushree Deepa- 1yr/Yashu Alamma 8 months/Madhumati Uligamma 15 months/Purvika Prema less than 15 months - Total 4 babies, 0 mothers. After consulting Dr Licy, it was felt that the following supplements would be required:
Expected Expenses for 6 babies and mothers:
Shelcal (Calcium) + Autrin (Iron) Medicines 6 sets@ Rs 239 each = Rs. 1736/-
Ragi 6Kg @ Rs.48 per kg = Rs. 288/-
Total supplies for 6 kids + mothers = Rs. 2024/-
We intend to expand this project to other slums as well
Donation Requirement: Rs 2,100/- for Supplements for 6 babies and lactating mothers [per month ].
