With the support of Persistent Foundation, undernourished children, between 2 and 6 years of age, received SaiSure Multi-Nutrient Supplement to boost their nutrition and immunity against potential onset of Covid infections in Ramanagara district of Karnataka state.


Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust is proud to be associated with Persistent Foundation which is growing exponentially in Education, Health, and Community Development in India. This IT giant is working through various implementing agencies to bring a positive impact on society. Below are a few beneficiary testimonials from anganwadi teachers, parents & Government officials:



A parent by name Archana


“My son’s name is Charan Kumar. Since my son is underweight, SaiSure health mix was provided. Now he has gained weight & become active as well. This SaiSure multi nutrient health mix is good.”



Anganwadi worker by name Asha from Channapatna taluk of Ramanagara district


“I work as Anganwadi worker. Out of 20-25 children in total from our centre, four of them in the ages 3-5 years, and 6 of them in the ages, 6 years and above come under MAM category. We have been giving SaiSure to 3-6 years of age children under MAM category. Underweight children who weighed 9 or 9.5 kg earlier, have gained weight & now increased to 10 or 10.3 kg. This SaiSure powder is beneficial to children. We have told the parents to give this along with milk. We are providing this product under the ICDS scheme & it has benefited the children in many ways. If this is provided to normal children as well, they can also improve and get stronger.”



Parent Chaitra of Iruligara Doddi of Ramanagara taluk
