A few months ago Francisca arrived at our medical center. She was suffering from malnutrition and fighting for her life. She was admitted into our malnutrition program and for weeks no one knew if she would live.
Our feeding program provides the children in school with a nutritious meal. The feeding program provides approximately 16,000 meals each month.
Program particulars vary between the provision of three meals a day for the children living on our campus to only lunch for the children who attend our school. Meals consist of fortified rice, beans, a protein, vegetables and clean drinking water.
The gift of a meal is more than just filling an empty stomach. School meals meet basic nutritional needs while keeping children focused in the classroom.
