On 17th July 2015, three more children in Civil Hospital Mithi (Tharparkar) passed away due to malnutrition. In Sindh around forty percent children are malnourished. Majority of such affected children live in Tharparkar district of Sindh. Health Department officials are just enjoying their lives without any care, they do not have to perform as no one cares if they are working or not as most are politically appointed and linked.
Naturally, I am in state of panic that where our provincial and federal governments are as to why innocent poor children are dying due to malnutrition. It is the responsibility of the government to provide food to all its citizens. Now, it seems that there isn’t any government in our country. We are at the mercy of harsh nature. I request Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) to contribute in this regard and save the children of Sindh from absolute malnutrition.
