In Bangladesh, more than half the population suffers from different types of malnutrition, micronutrients deficiencies, and energy deficiencies. Given the current context of Covid-19 pandemic, another dimension to the already existing nutritional crisis has been added. With people losing jobs nationwide, the impact is hitting people the hardest, who already are a victim to food insecurity.
Addressing this challenge, Spreeha brings a community-based Food and Nutrition Support project with an aim to prevent malnutrition and improve maternal, child, and adolescent nutrition in the underserved communities. From supply of nutritious food, medicines and hygiene materials to malnutrition screening to educating the communities, the project has taken up a number of interventions that that would thoroughly detect, prevent and treat malnutrition helping communities lead a healthy life.
The project is funded by Confidence Group.
