Nutrition Support for the Under-privileged

Mar 31, 2015

The commitment of Nestlé Pakistan to help the under-privileged people through nutritional support cannot be better explained than its assistance to Marie Adelaide Leprosy Hospital (MALC), Karachi. The partnership started in 2012 and has strengthened over the period of time. Nestlé Pakistan pledges to deliver a daily serving of milk to patients admitted in an 80-bed hospital which caters mainly to patients affected by leprosy. Majority of leprosy patients come from a low socio-economic strata and suffer from malnutrition. The regular consumption of milk, not only fulfills the dietary requirement of the patients, but also speeds up their recovery process.
