Underfed future of India

"It is painful to see that the struggle against hunger and malnutrition is hindered by market priorities, which have reduced foodstuffs to a commodity like any other...... we ask for dignity not for charity."By Pope Francis

We are turning the pages of this 'world' book so rapidly that we concern more for wealth rather than the health.  But we can see an interesting scenario also, where rich celebrities eat less to stay fit and 97 billion children of our country sleep with empty stomach unwillingly everyday. Can this underfed population lead this nation in future?

Issue which is more crucial then this 'starving population' is increasing "Malnutrition" cases in India.  There are about 19 million children who are below 6 years and suffering with malnourishment.  And they are ill fed due to lack of proper nourishment to their mothers. This has resulted in chronic hunger, underweight body, anemic and lack of healthcare conditions. Beside proper food, deficiency in good immunization facilities also increases the vulnerability of diseases like polio, anaemia, measles, whooping cough etc.

If a child is held with such health issues then he is not just able to cope up with acute physical and mental problems but also with permanent bodily disorders.  Who is responsible for such conditions of these children?  they suffer with malnutrition and its after effects throughout their life without any offence. Though the agencies of government, NGOs like "Cry", funds raised through charity and even individual brands work as a helping hand in the inadequacies of these children. But I think they must live a dignified life with all basic facilities instead of our mere assistance!

So rather than donating funds for these underfed children try to create more opportunities of employment, healthcare facilities and hygienic living conditions in which way you can. Such  support will not only improve the situations of these kids but also work for the development of the nation as a whole.
Happy Quarantine
