Caring & Sharing East Sussex "Live more simply that others may simply live"
Feeding Programme, Tegucigalpa, Honduras
This is not a country we often read about in our newspapers, but military rule, corruption, a huge wealth gap, crime and natural disasters have rendered Honduras one of the least developed countries in Central America.
A child eating her ‘snack’
The feeding scheme helps 250 children up to the age of 13 whose mothers work in the markets in the capital, Tegucigalpa. Once a week the children attend health and education workshops and the snack provided entirely by Caring and Sharing is a large incentive to their attendance.
The project organiser, Dr Donald Kaminsky, believes that for many of the children the snack is the most nutritious meal they receive all week as it consists of tortillas, rice, vegetables and meat and a fruit drink. It costs less than 50p per snack.
