The Children’s Welfare Charitable Trust (TCWCT), a Vadodara based 80G non-governmental organization, takes great pride in announcing the launch of the Food Security initiative in Vadodara. At the launch of its event, TCWCT provided hot lunches to over 325 locally disadvantaged people focusing on children who are most at risk for malnutrition. The event which featured over 30 volunteers was successful in providing mid-day meals to those most in need.
The level of malnutrition is of great concern in India with over 40% of children being classified as undernourished. “Children remain the most vulnerable in terms of food insecurity and malnutrition in India,” said Rupal P. Shukla, Vice-President of The Children’s Welfare Charitable Trust. She continued, saying “The Children’s Welfare Charitable Trust will continue to address severe and moderate acute malnutrition, especially in areas of greatest need.”
