Project Report | Jan 9, 2019
Food glorious food

By Louise Sosa | Project Leader

Just over a year ago we met Josue for the first time. Another organization asked us to visit the family due to my nutrition back ground and assess Josue as he was failing to thrive. We determined that he just was not getting enough food to eat. He then started pre school and was doing better due to the daily school snack. We became concerned that during the 3 month school break he would be nutritionally struggling. We have found that he has lost 5 pounds since school ended in the beginning of November. At 5 years old he only weighs 30 pounds.

We are now feeding him 5 days a week at our learning centre. We are also helping a few other children that we are concerned about. Josue and his family and friends chowing down on some yummy, nutritious food.

To complement their daily intake, we are adding chaya and amaranth to each plate of food.
