Did you have breakfast today?
It is an easy question to answer for the ones who have the opportunity to have a daily meal, at least 3 times a day. For many of the families, who lives around the Garbage Dump zone 3 areas, this is a really hard question to answer.
The low income the families get, from the garbage collection and classification, do not allow a lot of the families to provide good feeding to their children. The food insecurity triggers on the children of this community be affected on their physical, mental and emotional development.
Together, we can make the change!
Provide adequate feeding, the children will be able to have a physical, mental and emotional development, around 100 children and 50 teenagers, would be impacted and fulfill their top potential. At Libre Infancia, we look forward to seeing a change in the life of each them and their families.
How will we put your support in action?
Our nutritional program, at Libre Infancia, pursues to cover the basic needs of the children and the teenagers, who are part of our different activities, which are running during the weekdays and weekends.
We start with a nutritional status evaluation, to be able to detect malnourishment problems and other medical conditions. We will provide the medical treatment, as the case needs it, with a follow up high and weight evaluation, 6 months later.
The nutritional follow-up consists in providing breakfast, lunch, and snack, on a daily bases for the ones who study at Libre Infancia, from Monday to Friday; and supplementary feeding with snacks and food bag for those who come during weekdays. Currently, around 500 people are benefited from this program, between parents and their children.
The active participation of the parents, is very important, for that reason we constantly train them on different subjects such as good food management, hygiene and good nutritional care at home.
Libre Infancia has been working, with different families who live around the Garbage Dump community, of zone 3, during 27 years. Our best living testimonies are the children and teenager, who have been supported and formed, during these years.
Different companies and renowned people had invested in our vision of support on a holistic way to the children and teenagers, who live around the Garbage Dump community when they got to know our daily work.
We have been recognized, in 2,006, we won the Foundation Juan Bautista Gutiérrez award and an honorable mention in 2,012 for our transparency and good impact on the areas of education, nutrition, and health.
