Let’s be Well ‘Red’ is a project producing iron-rich nutritional bars and making it available to patients with iron deficiencies, in order to reduce the high prevalence of anaemia in India: 80% of India is anaemic and 10% is thalassemic. Let's be well 'Red' was launched last summer through the Swearer International Fellowship, to spread awareness, test and treat anemic and thalassemic women in the urban slums of Mumbai. This year, with the extensive help of the C.V. Starr Fellowship, we have started producing iron-rich bars to provide an easy, affordable and tasty solution to the condition, that will reach everyone suffering from anaemia. Through this single food source, long-term recovery of the condition is much more possible, which will enable us to fulfill the iron requirement of anaemic patients. This summer, we are starting a food division of Rajdhan Institute & Trading Private Limited, and holding more awareness camps all around Mumbai, in slums, universities, schools, hospitals, to promote the nutritional bar.
