Milk & Cookies to End Malnutrition
Guatemala & Haiti
With proper nutrition these children can become healthy and thrive.
Haiti and Guatemala have some of the highest rates of malnutrition. Children under the age of five with malnourished mothers are the most vulnerable group. Many are born with medical complications and continue in a life of undernourishment that impacts their growth, development, immune systems, learning and memory. Protein rich foods are not easily accessible, leading to malnutrition in one-third of women and children.
Partners in Development (PID) has tailored this project to fit each child’s needs. This might mean specially formulated nutritional cookies packed with protein and vitamins, or daily cooked meals.
