Talking about Child Help Foundation’s (CHF) contribution towards NikshayMitra, Mr. Shaji Varghese, CEO of Child Help Foundation, said, “We recognize the danger that tuberculosis possesses. We live in a country where garbage piles can be found near residential areas, so it is no surprise that many people are prone to tuberculosis. To manage the same, our team regularly conducts campaigns to make sure that we clean the vicinity and encourage people to keep their surroundings clean, but I also recognize that some people have no choice but to live in such dwellings. Therefore, Child Help Foundation, along with Filaantro, have decided to become ‘NikshayMitra’ and joined hands with our implementation partner- Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). I would also encourage others to support us in our mission.”
This Nutritional Kit includes 2kg Rice, 2kg Wheat flour, 2kg Groundnut, 500 gms Tur Dal, 500 gms Moong Dal, 500 gms Jaggery, 250 gms Dates, 1 litre of Groundnut/Sunflower oil, 250 grams of Rajma and 250 grams Red Gram (Lal Chana).
The Child Help Foundation is committed to the nation’s cause of making India Tuberculosis-free by 2025. Filaantro calls for our contribution to do their part for this noble mission. With our overwhelming support, CHF might be able to increase the number of beneficiaries and continue the good work for more than six months.
We request and encourage people to donate so that the NGO can provide these nutritional kits to more people in need and underprivileged children. Share this campaign with your friends and family members to increase the reach of our mission.
