Child In Need Institute (CINI) UK

Written on: Tuesday December 23rd, 2008

A journal entry from: Naomi In India

In Januray 2009 I'm travelling to Calcutta, India to spend my elective in a hospital run by Child In Need Institute- CINI UK.

Child nutrition is a major problem in India. One in eleven children born in India currently die before the age of six and around half these deaths are related to malnutrition. Many more are left with learning difficulties, disabilities or chronic ill health because of lack of vital nutrients during the most critical period for child development.

I'm raising money for CINI UK and your donation could make all the difference. 3.14 would cover the food needed to nurse a severely malnourished child back to health; 11 would cover the salary ofa CINI health worker for a week, working to prevent malnutrition and and improve child and maternal health;40 is enough to give ten severely malnourished children a second chance, including all food, medical care and everything they need during their recovery. Think what you could do for more!

Please see my Justgiving website:


Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Child In Need Institute (Cini) Uk gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
