Community Health development with health education and nutritional care.

Malnutrition results from a poor diet or a lack of food. It happens when the intake of nutrients or energy is too high, too low, or poorly balanced. Under nutrition can lead to delayed growth or wasting, while a diet that provides too much food, but not necessarily balanced, leads to obesity. Poor diet may lead to a lack of vitamins, minerals and other essential substances. Too little protein can lead to Kwashiorkar symptoms of which include a distended abdomen. A lack of vitamin C can result in Scurvy. Malnutrition during childhood can lead not only to long term health problems but also to educational challenges and limited work opportunities in the future. To create awareness among mothers SIDS organized awareness camp/seminars on Nutritional Care and community health development.

Water, Sanitation and WASH programs

Water is one of the most vital resources. When water is polluted it is devastating not only the environment but also to human health and communities. Without safe drinking water a living being simply can not survive. Polluted water is not just dirty-it is deadly. Each person on earth requires at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking , cooking and simply keeping themselves clean. Clean water is vital to our health, community and economy. In Sundarbans area clean water is available from deep tube wells. So cement concrete platform surrounding tube- wells is very required. SIDS constructed many platforms. Awareness programs on importance of toilets and use of toilets, hand washing before meal, etc. are implemented in various ways.
