The importance of this programme

I wanted to explain how important this programme is. It is the give a fish or teach a man to fish thing.

However, the meal programme is not in isolation, rather it is a most important part of a whole picture. This programme of providing a nutritious meal to the children and old people of a village is part of an overall health programme, which includes preventative care, health education and the provision of clean water (please see our water pump appeal on Global Giving).

You may have heard of midday meal schemes for schoolchildren in India; these do not exist or rather are not functioning in the villages we hope to continue this vitally important provision.

The Public distribution system has failed in this area, people and children are hungry and this is having a very serious effect on children’s health.

Please help us put them back on the road to health by supporting our Appeal
