Hindustan Zinc launches Koi Bacha Rahe Na Bhookha campaign

In the wake of this unprecedented pandemic, vulnerable communities continue to struggle for food and ration. This has impacted lactating mothers, newborn and young children the most. HZL’s KBNRB program till date has touched the lives of more than 17,000 Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) and Moderate Acute Malnutrition (MAM) children. About 263 Khushi workers participated in the effort voluntarily, by assisting in supplying dry ration and Take-Home Ration (THR) for 2,372 SAM & MAM children, with support from Anganwadi and ASHA team of volunteers. Another set of 9,500 vulnerable families have also been ensured with supply of dry ration. Furthermore, the Company’s partners mobilized the community and as a result more than 2,500 families received dry ration support from ~300 local donors.
The project is being implemented in partnership with reputed NGOs like Gramin Avam Samajik Vikas Sanstha (Ajmer), CARE India (Bhilwara & Chittorgarh), Jatan Sansthan (Rajsamand) and Seva Mandir (Udaipur) and would cover five districts of Rajasthan. The campaign has been launched under Khushi Anganwadi programme which is a unique tri-partite Public-People initiative.
