Continuing the Feeding Program Amidst COVID-19

Each week we are still working with feeding malnourished, under 5 year old children in Zambia Compound 3 times per week. The program has changed a bit due to COVID-19. We no longer meet once a week with the children to serve them hot porridge. Now we are only able to provide them with a dry High Energy Protein Supplement (HEPS) 3 times a week. We make it here at NLC each week and deliver it to one of our Community Health Educators (CHEs) who live in Zambia Compound. The family of the children in the program then come and collect it from the CHEs. It is still helping children stay nourished and healthy. Thank you to all who make this feeding program a success!
