About Mihika Suraj

Mihika Suraj is a multi-talented grade 6 student who is a trained singer, guitarist, and performer. She also enjoys playing sports like badminton, football and athletics and thus realizes the importance of nutrition. Introduced to Spirulina chikki when she was 9 years old, Mihika was very surprised when her parents told her that this delicious concoction was also healthy. Like any other child, she wondered how something so healthy could also be tasty and thus started researching and learned that Spirulina is a natures’ gift pack of umpteen micronutrients which has great health benefits, especially in the fight against child malnutrition.

From impressionistic age, Mihika has been donating ration’ to the homeless and the underprivileged who ask for money at traffic signals. Seeing little children of her age or younger, looking malnourished and seeking for food has always bothered her. Thus, when she realized how nourishing the Spirulina chikki was, she decided that she wanted to give these chikkis to such kids. While she understood that Spirulina can help all children, she also realized that some kids cannot afford it. That is when she got the idea for her “EAT ONE FEED ONE” campaign. She believes that if each child who can afford to buy one chikki opted to buy instead two, it would help in the fight against malnutrition. How? If the child buys two, she can keep one and donate the other to a child who cannot afford it. In this way, all children can get healthy together.

To raise awareness regarding this issue Mihika has written, composed, and sung this jingle and plans to continue to do so in other languages also. Till date she has raised Rs 20000 and has thus helped many kids reach the nourishment threshold. We request you to join this campaign, by buying two chikkis: Savor the deliciousness of one and feed the other chikki to a child who cannot afford to buy and thus make yourself stronger and also eradicate malnutrition from our country. Either you can donate the second “chikkis” to someone underprivileged and under nourished that you know of or Spirulina foundation can do it for you.

About the Organization

The Good Country Index tries to measure what each country on Earth contributes to the common good of humanity, and what it takes away. India ranks 81st in this index, and the glaring outlier is the sub-ranking of prosperity and equality, where we rank a low 116. Malnutrition is a highly visible illustration of this situation, in a country where so much food is consumed. India has an exceptionally high level of malnutrition (2 out of every 3 malnourished kids on the earth is an Indian, Nearly 50% of India’s kids below 5 years is malnourished). This partcular foundation firmly believes that the answer to these problems is Spirulina. Spirulina is globally accepted and used as a key tool against malnutrition by United Nations and Worls Health Organisation.
