NUTRITION


Nutrition programmes bring so much  relief to impoverished children. Children are less likely to become sick and there is a huge decrease in the rate of stomach and headaches. Even more seriously, however, is the fact that even mild or moderate malnitrition is attrributable to the exacerbation of otherwise minor health problems. Malnutrition often joins forces with common infectious diseases to create a deadly combination. The fact that around 33% of Cambodia‚Äôs population suffer from malnutrition makes a nutrition programme necessary especially in under developed schools. Another reason why we include a nutrition programme is that it provides a big incentive for impoverished families to send their children to school, hence increasing the enrolment rate at the school.
