fighting severe childhood malnutrition

The Chuk Muk Health Centre works daily to help at risk families in the village. Severe malnutrition and stunting are a huge problem. The health centre approached Aldea Maya to see if they could partner with us to come up with effective solutions. Our first step was to construct a small organic garden outside their office. The Health Centre wanted the garden to be small so they could illustrate that you did not need a large yard to produce food for the family. Through our Global Giving donations we were able to purchase the fence, hose and seeds for the garden. The food this garden produces will be given to malnurished children when they visit the centre. The grade 5 children from the local elementary school helped in the construction of the garden. These students started seedlings, helped build the fence and beds. The students are using the skills they have learned to give back to their community.
