With your support, we will serve the poorest of the poor children in the 4 most destitute provinces of Vietnam (Ha Giang, Lai Chau, Dien Bien and Son La).We will deliver vitamins and minerals to fill the nutrient gaps in the diets of these children. We will reduce the number of undernourished and stunted children in Vietnam. You can make a difference! Please consider supporting this project!
A Vietnamese child's diet typically does not provide enough energy, nutrients and micronutrients for their optimal growth and development. As a result, one third of children under-five suffer from stunted growth due to chronic malnutrition and twenty percent are considered underweight. Because malnourished children grow up with worse health and lower education achievement, the Vietnamese Government has made the reduction of malnutrition a priority.
While milk supply is a good nutrition solution, it costs much higher than micronutrient products in improving children's health conditions. Therefore, Aid for Kids is going to provide the children with micronutrient products that are easy to distribute and have been proved by GAIN and NIN to tackle malnutrition in Vietnamese children effectively.
Long-term output: Increase weights and heights of 1,000 children in normal development speeds Decrease the total number of undernourished and stunted children in Vietnam.
