Challenge

World Health Organization report says that HIV/AIDS infected Children who are undergoing ART treatment need high value and fresh nutrition food for avoiding other infections such as Tuberculosis, Diarrhea , Jaundice, Ulcer, mums etc. infection and malnutrition due to heavy dose treatment and drugs reducing their appetite. The target children's homes are dysfunctional families owing to several psycho-social pressures including poverty and unable to provide nutritious food for their children

Solution

The nutritious food we provide to make a proven change to the health of the target children. The children enjoy a return to health, including returning to school and enjoy longer periods of health as compared to other children not receiving the nutrition support. Provided along with ART medication the children are able to respond to the medication while children still malnourished do not have the strength to respond to the aggressive medication.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support 120 HIV/AIDS infected children to save the target children from certain death, uplift their morale, provide continuous health care and remove the societal negligence so as to enable them to have equitable living condition on par with other children.
