Proposed Project Title


Covid relief fund - Mobile Vegetable Bank for Pregnant Women from Marginalized Poor communities

 

Thematic Area

Eradicating hunger, poverty and malnutrition, promoting health care, sanitation & safe drinking water

Sub Thematic Area

Hunger & Malnutrition

Project Synopsis

COVID- 19 lockdowns has severely impacted the oppressed and marginalized communities in the villages of Thiruthuraipoondi, Thiruvarur District, Tamil Nadu, India. Those community members are daily wagers and they do not have jobs, money, and food now. In this situation, it becomes extremely hard and challenging for pregnant women in their communities to have access to nutrition-rich food which is very important during pregnancy. As we know poor maternal nutrition will lead to many complications. Without proper nutritional intake (protein, iron, folic acid, and essential vitamins) those pregnant women and their would-be children will be vulnerable to many issues like intra-uterine growth retardation, miscarriage, pre-term delivery, low birth weight of babies, reduced physical and mental potential of children.

Proposed Project Description

In our area Thiruvarur District Thiruthuripoondi Taluk Rural poor and slum area poor people all are facing more difficulty and hardship due to no work no income, poor diet, lesser intake of iron enriched and other essential nutrient minerals and vitamins needed to increase the peoples stamina and immunity power and nutritional standard. The pregnant women are more susceptible for lack of nutritional standard and lesser hemoglobin level with lesser immunity due to un-affordability, unavailability un-accessibility of fresh nutritional vegetables fruits nuts etc due to poor economic condition lesser income 144 curfew and lockdown implementation and corona covid 19 epidemic in our area also. So pregnant women families are susceptible for infection of dangerous communicable diseases corona, typhoid, malaria, anemia, heart problem, babies born with deformities, underweight baby, disabled under weight and mentally retarded babies born due to severe anemic, lesser immunity, lesser metabolism and severe lack of essential vitamins and minerals intake.
There exists an emergency need to facilitate free supply of fresh nutritional enriched, chemical free nature based cultivated vegetables especially Green Leaves, Karat, Iron Enriched Yellowish Vegetables, Amla, Lemon, Pumpkin, Plantain And Nuts Seasonal Local Fruits, Orange, Dates, Jaggery, Groundnut Sweet Cake, Dry Craps Cashew Nut Badam etc with eggs to the poor pregnant families every week at their door step direct supply with counseling.
We proposed this project to implement a centralized vegetable bank establishing with storage and supply van on road there by to provide weekly 500pregnant women (Daily 100 women and Sunday Wednesday only purchase of fresh vegetables fruits etc on rotation every week totally y covering 500 pregnant women…)
Thus the immunity of pregnant mothers and new born baby and health and nutritional improvement of all poor pregnant women totally 500 of our area are achieved by this project.
We can also achieve good maternal and child health with no underweight baby born; reduced maternal death reduced infant mortality. No disease for mother and child especially with the improved immunity to prevent all dangerous diseases like corona for their entire family
