Summary

Since 2005, the pediatric visits reach out to more than 7000 children at risk and their communities, providing food and critical medical and dental attention and teaching fundamental health care. Your help supports periodic medical examinations helping children fulfill their hopes of a bright and healthy future. This project will cover annual expenses related to provide pediatric service and food for schools located in Tucuman (2), Salta (1), Misiones (4), Santa Fe (1), Bs As (3), Chaco (5)

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There is a current sanitary and nutritional emergency in more than 4000 schools throughout Argentina. The difficult task of providing critical medical services to these areas threatens the lives of an entire generation of children. This situation is aggravated by the lack of sanitary and education attention, the irregular or scarce government aid, and the precarious infrastructure located in places with difficult accesses due to their geography and climate.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through periodic medical visits we provide nutritional complements to targeted children. They are enrolled in an annual health care control plan that facilitates the nutrition and growth follow-up. Our doctors teach the children and their families about preventive health care that promotes better habits within the community and they also provide medical treatment. In several cases, children will receive these medical, dentist and ophthalmologic services and vaccination for the first time ever.

Potential Long Term Impact

Sumando Manos Foundation is helping several communities with medical and nutritional needs. Since our visits started in 2005, to date nutrition deficiencies have decreased 60%, dentistry problems such as cavities 54% and common skin diseases 25%. The preventive health care education combined with healthy nutrition produced results that can be measured not only statistically, but also with prospects of a brighter future. Integrate Health, Nutrition and Education programs is key for their future.
