Scrummy food in Peru!

As we come close to US Mother's Day on May 12, we are focusing on supporting our Moms in Peru!

In Perú this month we have had an exciting addition to our nutritional program and provided by the Government!  The Government irregularly send food to our project in Perú, if there isn't enough food then we cover the extra food costs as the children cannot manage without the food they are given in school. On top of the main meal, we also provide fruit everyday to each child to ensure they are given enough nutrition through vitamins and minerals.

This month, the Government has added the addition of powered milk to the nutritional programe! Powdered milk, with water added, can provide a plethra of nutrition for the children. It contains carbohydate, protein, calcium, amino acids, vitamins and minerals which will boost the children's health incredibly. This new addition to the children's diet, prepared by Phoenix cooks, will affect the children a lot and we hope to see health improving over the next few months.

Not only does the food program support the children greatly, it also lifts a weight off the minds of their Moms. All Moms want is the best for their children, and this program is giving them that.

We are part of Global Giving's Mother's Day campaign this year, celebrating Moms in the US and Guatemala through one gift. If you would like to support Mom's in Guatemala, whilst gifting your Mom a handmade scarf and set of worry dolls then please take a look at our gift:

Thank you
