MFF Funds Nutrition Centers in India
The Bhupat & Jyoti Mehta Family Foundation (MFF) funded ten nutrition centers with Manav Sadhna, a nonprofit organization based in the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, India. The nutrition centers are located within the Ramapir No Tekro (Tekro) area of Ahmedabad. Tekro is one of the largest slums in the world, and those living in slum communities experience health and addiction issues, violence and abuse, poor hygiene, illiteracy, unemployment, and other conditions common for those caught in the cycle of poverty and despair. In addition to providing nutritious meals, the nutrition centers provide immunizations, health education, and community services to over 500 children and 80 pregnant women every day.
