The pupils at Namalu Nursery in Karamoja enjoy their porridge at break time each day!
Poverty is extreme in this part of Uganda, and daily porridge is a nutritional meal that helps sustain the children’s body mass index (BMI). Their levels had dropped slightly during the long vacation due to the current drought and resulting food shortage. Receiving porridge each day will help to build up their strength once more. Without this provision from Child of Hope, the children would not necessarily eat each day, impacting their health and ability to learn.
