Three-year-old Mizbah lives in a small room in Sai Baba Nagar with her parents and her younger sister. The family is not financially sound as Mizbah’s father is a daily-wage labourer and works as a waste segregator with a mere income of Rs. 100 per day. Her mother is a housewife.
Mizbah is losing weight at an alarming pace and has become susceptible to illnesses due to poor nutrition, hygiene, and financial instability. Her worsening health condition was a cause of concern for her mother. Therefore, her mother reached out to Save the Children’s health worker, Malti. Mizbah’s mother, Afsana was told to bring Mizbah for a monthly growth monitoring. Soon, it was found that Mizbah fell in the Severely Acute Malnourished category.
