DON'T LET HUNGER STOP YOUR LEARNING
By Monica Ma. Serna G | Comunity Manager
We often hear how learning difficulties go hand in hand with the hunger suffered by many children in Colombia. And beyond that, many go to their schools on an empty stomach, or only have the chance to eat one meal a day.
All this affects the cognitive development of our children since they will have difficulty reading, writing and memorizing, since their neural connections of a malnourished child are not the same.
Language is also directly involved in this process; insufficient food consumption, lack of adequate nutrition and diseases that appeared after the covid 19 pandemic; it does not allow them to have defenses in their body. Producing irreversible physical and mental delays.
Our foundation supplies children with food so that they go to their schools WITHOUT HUNGER. And on other days, he receives the children who come from studying so that they return home WITHOUT HUNGER.
But the Inflation in our country has affected our Foundation to purchase food. That is why we need to add your help to be able to continue helping more children who come requesting places in our care centers.
Our children receive food gratefully, learn, enjoy the games and learn with their peers at the Time of Peace Foundation!!
