Food Assistance to needy patients in Tando Jan Muhummad, Sindh, through the courtesy of Austrian friends of MALC
It is due to the constant support of Austrian friends of MALC that MALC is able to reach out to underprivileged communities in rural Sindh. Nutrition and disability are intimately linked; malnutrition can directly cause or contribute to disability. With large family sizes often ranging between 8 to 12 members per family and scarce financial resources, people with disabilities and malnourished mothers/ children are unable to obtain the required nutritional needs and are often neglected. Inaccessible or expensive transport further restricts them from obtaining services. Food hampers consisting of essential items to meet their nutritional requirements during this pandemic were provided to them on June 29, 2020. The distribution phase will be continued in the next quarter for needy people.
