Meetings for pregnant and new mothers

We are continuing to visit different villages to hold awareness programs with mothers. At our latest meeting, we learned that the average birth weight of the children was 2 to 2.5 kg (4.5 to 5.5 lbs.) indicating lack of nutrition during their pregnancy. Also several mothers were giving cows milk to their babies which was causing them to be sick often .  They were explained the importance of nutrition and breast-feeding, and encouraged to take children for their regular medical check-ups at the local government clinic.
