Tharparkar Staff Reporter
The situation regarding the health of children in Tharparkar district has reached its worst, with malnourished children becoming a picture of helplessness, frustration and desolation.
Simple parents dwelling in Tharpakar are neither being given necessary awareness to remove malnutrition nor being given counseling nor communities being mobilized nor children living in outreach areas being referred to special health centers, namely Outpatient Therapeutic Program (OTP).
Poor parents do not know where to take their sick children, how to take care of them, what are the nutritional requirements of their children, etc.
It is to be noted that an agreement has been signed with a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) to work on the issues of malnutrition in the outreach areas of Tharparkar.
