The NSS wing of Kalinga Institute of Nursing Sciences (KINS) organized an awareness program on “Importance of Breastfeeding” in the OBG & Pediatric OPD of KIMS on 5th August 2021 on the occasion of World Breastfeeding Week 2021. The awareness program was conducted by NSS volunteers of B.Sc. Nursing and M.Sc.

The volunteers created awareness regarding “Exclusive breastfeeding, Duration of feeding, Latching, Positioning, and Benefits of breastfeeding for both the mother and the baby”.
