4 months ago we began a child nutrition program to improve the development of the children in the schools with which we work. We found that 44% of them were anemic.
With only 4 months of hard work we are very pleased with the results attained! We have managed to reduce the amount of anemic children to 21% through a thorough plan which involves increased awareness from the community regarding hygiene, the consumption of clean water to avoid parasitosis in children, preparation of healthy and low cost meals using local ingredients and the consumption of anti-anemic cookies.
We still have a long way to go, but we are pleased with the results that show that we’re on the right path and most importantly, we are improving the development of our country’s future leaders.
