On 6 Baishak (April 19), Nepal’s youngest children will need all the help they can get,” UNICEF Representative, Dr Suomi Sakai, said today. The 3.3 million Vitamin A capsules are distributed to all children aged from six months to five years and the 3.1 million deworming tablets are for children aged from one to five years. “This distribution, which saves some 12,000 lives a year, is the largest exercise in child survival in Nepal,” said Dr Sakai. “The process started months ago when the supplies first arrived in the country. Now supplies are waiting in each ward and the 48,000 Female Community Health Volunteers are briefed and ready to give them to the children.
