Malnutrition in Jharkhand, Anganwadi dysfunctional

February 17; Koderma, Jharkhand

An Anganwadi centre has been in Behradih village block for 10 years now, but no women or children in the village have ever received any benefits that such a centre should accord for. Babita Devi, a dalit resident, lost her 2-year-old daughter because of malnutrition. The purpose of an Anganwadi centre is to fight health menaces like malnutrition in rural areas, and help more women like Babita. But Koderma is a grand failure in this regard.

You can help Community Correspondent Vinti Vishwakarma in her efforts to get the Anganwadi centre in the village functional, so that hundreds of women like Babita and their families can be benefitted the scheme designed for them by the government.

Call the District Commissioner K. Ravi Kumar at +91-9334 935 997 and ask him to get the centre working.
