Virtual MCHC OPD in collaboration with Ruth Pfau Stiftung
Inadequate nutrition among mothers during pregnancy is one of the main reasons of malnutrition among children leading to stunting. In Pakistan, 38% of children under five years of age are stunted. MALC is reaching out to malnourished mothers and children in rural Sindh and Karachi by providing primary Mother and Child Health Care services free of charge. As Coronavirus cases surge, MALC has started virtual MCHC OPD services in collaboration with Ruth Pfau Stiftung to reduce COVID-19 transmission while ensuring continuity of services to marginalized people during the pandemic. Together, we can fight malnutrition.
