About the organization

Fight Hunger Foundation is an Indian not-for-profit which promotes community-based approaches for the management of acute malnutrition. Severe acute malnutrition, the most serious form of hunger, is deadly if left untreated and threatens millions of lives each year

Fight Hunger Foundation is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of malnutrition in urban and rural areas at various parts in India.

Our Work includes:

Community-Based Management Of Acute Malnutrition :

The assessment, treatment and prevention activities are designed and carried out together with communities and health services. Children suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and with a medical condition are treated in intensive-care inpatient facilities known as Nutrition Rehabilitation Centres. These hospital-like centres required children and their parents or caregivers to remain in residence during their month-long treatment. 

 

Diagnosing Malnutrition :

The key to saving the life of a malnourished child is early detection. For this, we use the middle upper arm circumference measurement or MUAC – if a child’s upper arm measures less than 11.5 cm, then he/she are suffering from severe acute malnutrition – and we check for oedema, which is observed in painful swellings in legs and feet. Children suffering from moderate malnutrition are referred to Anganwadi centres, while those with severe acute malnutrition are referred to government-run Nutrition Rehabilitation Centres.

Treating Malnutrition :

Treatment is very high priority as children unable to receive it are in danger of losing their lives. We treat cases of severe acute malnutrition with inpatient care and cases of moderate acute malnutrition with community-based outpatient programmes. We always work in close collaboration with communities, local partners and local health services.
