Nutrition & Food

temp place Nutrition & FoodGiving the children the nutrients they need to stay healthy

The work started by visting slum areas and giving out fruit to the children to help boost their immune levels and also to bring a smile to their faces. Fruit, including Oranges, Apples, Bananas, Water Melons and Pineaplles help by providing an extra boost of vitamins and health-boosting antioxidants.

As we grew our work learned more towards long term support and education, as such we now provide daily meals at the centre for the children when they finish school. These meal are normally served with Rice and/or Chapatis, and inlude veg, eggs, chicken and fish.

We also provide grain/rice and other dry goods during Diwali and Eid as a way of celebrating the Hindu and Muslim festivals.

What We Do

temp placeFruitHealth Boosting

We always love to take a trip out and give fruit (and sometimes chocolates ;) to the slum children who live around the centre. It is always a good way for visitors to meet the children the first time by buying and distributing fruit to the children.

temp placeDaily MealsAfterschool Meals at the centre

Every day after school the some of the children come to the Centre for extra classes, to collect monthyl supplies or to use the computers and when they do they are welcomed with a nutritious meal made fresh every day. We cook vge, eggs, chicken and fish depending on what is available in the local market.

Each year we celebrate Diwali and Eid (combined), by providing Bags full of dry goods and health items. These bags are stiched from receycled material and made into 'shopping bags' which then can be re-used by the families. Each year we give out 100 or more bags filled to the brim with Rice, Flour, Sugar, Tur Dal, spices, soap, toothpaste and more.

We are occasionaly invited out for meals at local restuarants and celebrate special occasisons and birthdays att the centre. This often includes a larger variety of food including pizzas (the children's favourite) and cakes and pastries.

The pademic hit hard, especially in India where there was a strongly enforced lockdown with no notice. This resulted in millions of families struggling to feed themselves, including many of our families who work hand to mouth.

Lucklily the charity had a good stock of dry goods at they had just boughts some days before and we were one of the first to start providing a life line to our families as well as many more.
