Child malnutrition is a major problem among children living in slums. This affects their physical growth and brain development. We do feeding programs targeting vulnerable children in Kibera slums.
It is sad that there are a lot of people around informal settlements of Kenya who starve on a daily basis. They are lacking one the basic needs everyone should have access to. How are they to go up their pyramid of needs, if even the basic ones they lack?
The feeding program is carried seasonally targeting community members mainly women and children who cannot afford a meal. When we also have enough food donated, they come to our office and are given a meal to eat and cereals or flour to keep them moving on.
In future we are looking forward to expand the feeding program to other neighboring areas .
