Malnutrition in children is still a huge problem in South Africa, especially here in the Cape Peninsula.
Did you know that children make up more than half of our soup kitchens lines every day?
With almost 70% of children living below the poverty line in South Africa. Many of them do still do not have access to nutritious food to help develop their growing bodies and minds. Malnutrition in children continues to be a serious issue in our poor communities where access to the right food is limited or unavailable.
A child cannot focus let alone learn on an empty stomach. There are many schools and ECD Centres that fall outside of the Government’s quantile system. Many of our beneficiaries who also manage on-site ECDs struggle to get funding and equipment to help run their establishments. They are also in need of food to feed the children every day, while also feeding the children in their communities.
