Challenge

In many health centers and hospitals in South Sudan, under nutrition is a leading cause of death of the TB patients. TB patients died of diseases resulted from under nutrition and lack of knowledge of balanced diets and nutritious foods

Solution

CEF supplies calorie dense foods, food rich in Vitamin A, C, and E, protein rich foods, food rich in B complex vitamins, and food rich in zinc. By supplying nutritious food to TB patients, we are boosting their immune system and protecting their lives. Incidents of death related to diseases caused by under nutrition for TB patients has reduced and many TB patients recovered from the disease

Long-Term Impact

By supplying nutritious food to TB patients, we not only boost their immune system and protect their lives, but we train them on the right nutritious foods to eat by a TB patient. These TB patients bring the knowledge and experiences to their communities on how to protect TB patients from diseases related to under nutrition.
