The WHO report ‘ Dying for a Change’ states that lack of food is one of the most frequently mentioned wants. Hunger and malnutrition are seen as underlying causes of many diseases. They cause weakness and exhaustion and make people more susceptible to infections. Many people in the developing world say they eat only once a day and sometimes have nothing for days on end.
Ehsaas has established five mobile kitchens (dastarkhuwan) for the poor and those on low incomes and serves a nutritional and dignified meal (at least meat korma and naan) at the kitchens twice a day.
To date, over 7.85 million meals have been served to the neediest.
