Feed a Child for a Year

R1,700

Over 23% of pre-school children in Namibia have vitamin A deficiency which makes them 20 times more likely to die from common childhood diseases.

One out of four Namibian children has reduced capacity to learn as a result of an iodine deficiency.

In the region where we operate, close to 400 children are treated for malnutrition every year.

  • One full meal a day, five days a week. Depending on what we can negotiate in bulk, we feed the children rice or mealy meal, along with beans, stock and bread.
  • A snack of bread and juice or a vitamin drink.
  • The children have access to clean water to drink and wash with while at our Centre, and they have toilet facilities they can use.
