CWDR launches Uddam nutritional program among IDP children


[CWDR 28 August 2008]



On 28 August, CWDR began distributing Uddam nutritional supplement to children under five and pregnant mothers among the displaced people in Vanni.

The supplement consisting of green gram, urid dhal, cowpea, and roasted rice, flavoured with sugar, pepper and cumin was prepared and packed into 500gms bags at the CWDR office under strict hygienic condition, following expert nutrition advice. One bag per child is distributed to the families and the program will be ongoing until the families are able to provide adequate nutrition to their children under 5.

On 28, close to 1000 such bags were distributed to IDP families in Ponnahar in Murkandy in Kilinochchi.

The program was launched with funds provided by the CWDR branches in Switzerland and Germany.
