This project seeks to provide healthy and free food to 75 children with low nutrition in ages ranging from two to six years; children, single mothers, widows and unemployed in the neighborhood the Bombita; the poorest sector of the province of Azua, Dominican Republic.
In Azua, specifically the Bombita neighborhood in terms of poverty has an 80% poverty level, that is, because of its marginal urban characteristics and its social and demographic composition, the percentage is higher than the other neighborhoods of the province of Azua. That is to say that of every 100 people who live in La Bombita, 80 live in poverty, 45 very poor and 40 cannot read or write. These levels of marginality and poverty are more reflected in women and children.
We will make a medical evaluation to the children We will provide a monthly food ration for one year to 75 children from two years to six to ensure good nutrition. We will train the parents of these children on the food system and family production. We will make periodic home visits to each home to follow up and guide parents about household hygiene. We will have a quarterly assessment of height and weight in children
The project will feed 75 girls for a year that will allow you to eat well and stay healthy with healthy growth, as well as 75 mothers of these children will know and apply the appropriate knowledge of food systems and will be motivated to seek means of work or a business family that will guarantee that in the future these children enjoy a healthy and safe diet. .
