We are very pleased to announce that we have launched a long awaited and much needed feeding program at the Primary School from pre-school to Grade 2.
Each week 276 children are given a nutritious meal kindly donated by Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) in America. The rice pack formula is specially designed to meet the needs of the most severely malnourished children with all key vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
This last winter term has been even more difficult than usual with most families producing no yields in the previous season due to harsh annual drought. The food programme was established for a set time to bring relief to the youngest children.
If funding allows we hope to continue with this program and expand up to further grades. All of the children in these photos were surviving on one meal at the end of each day, which causes issues in attendance and concentration. Receiving a nutrient rich meal will not only improve their health, well-being and attendance, it reduces the stress on guardians and families who suffer from severe hunger. Thank you to all those who have supported this programme.
