Please note that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We take pride in caring for and nurturing our children. Providing them with nutritious meals to sustain them throughout the day is a central part of this and for many of us meal times are something to look forward to for the whole family.
However, 1 in 6 children in developing countries are underweight, and 66 million primary school children attend lessons hungry in the developing world. The long-term effects of hunger run deep and can cripple whole communities. Endemic malnutrition leads to poor health and increased school drop-out rates. This in turn leads to continued poverty and the vicious cycle continues from one generation to the next.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. With simple interventions, such as providing healthy meals, nutritional supplements and treatment for infections, so many lives can be saved. Furthermore, by helping us improve nutrition, you will be improving children's ability to focus and achieve well in class, thus rehabilitating the health and livelihood prospects of an entire community.
Through our Food 4 Kids programme, we provide children all over the world with balanced meals, essential vitamin supplements and medical check-ups and treatment. Raising awareness is also a big part of the programme, and we also train teachers and healthcare workers on recognising and treating malnutrition.
We are currently providing over 1,800 meals a day, but there is much more to be done. With your generous support, we can reach even more children with the support they need to keep them healthy and alive.
