Over 400,000 children die of diarrheal disease every year

THE TREATMENT: ORS and Zinc

Oral rehydration solution (ORS)
  • Mixture of Water, Sugar, and Salts

  • Helps prevent dehydration, the primary cause of children’s deaths due to diarrhoea

  • Prevents up to 93% of diarrhoea deaths

 
Zinc tablets
  • Restore function of the intestines, boosts the immune system

  • Reduces the duration of the diarrheal episode and helps prevent future episodes for 2-3 months.
