Nutrition Supplements

During one of the interaction with the Mandal Vikalangula Sangam Members, a discussion on the support needed for the poor children with severe disabilities came up.It was then decided to support these children with the nutritional supplements particularly the most severely malnourished children with disabilities who have been identified as part of the work of the team in the villages of its operational area.

Once the DPOs were formed and became strong and independent, the members of the village level DPOs took over the responsibility of ensuring that the most severely malnourished children with disabilities were provided with all the necessary nutritional supplements. The DPOs at the village level provide the supplements with their money and submit the bills for the same to the Mandal level Federation for reimbursement. The Federations, which are financially supported by several agencies then reimburse the village level DPOs for the expenditure incurred for the provision of nutritious supplements.

Presently 42 children with disabilities who were the most malnourished were being provided with the necessary nutritional supplements like milk and egg every day.
