The project will provide specialized nutritional support and recovery treatment for 150 vulnerable children under 5 years old that suffer from chronic malnutrition.
The 'Centro Genesis Nutrir' is located in a slum where families face difficult economic situations, live in poor housing conditions and children receive low nutritional and educational services. 30% of children under 5 suffer from malnutrition and therefore have symptoms as: anemia, insufficient weight and size and weak health.
The project will provides integral nutritional support and treatment for children and educational and prevention work with families.
It is important to reach children under age 5 to ensure an appropriate development and strengthen their future social, cognitive and affective abilities. Once that goal is reached, the child will grow up to achieve his or her full potential.
