Mercy Touch operates a feeding program on the farm. In cooperation with a local clinic, Mercy Touch staff and volunteers identify malnourished children up to the age of five who can be included in the program to be restored to a healthy weight.
Caregivers who bring their children to the feeding program receive a meal together with the children and participate in group discussions on child-care and family-related topics. Fun activities are planned for the children after meal-time.
Following the feeding program, caregivers receive soya protein supplements to mix into family meals during the week to help the children gain weight.
