Fighting child malnutrition in Munsieville

Malnutrition is a significant public health challenge in South Africa, particularly among young children. Lack of a nutritious diet affects a child’s mental and physical well-being, and their educational achievements and future as a healthy, productive adult are threatened. South Africa produces more food than it needs, yet hunger is a stark reality for children in South African townships. Tackling to this challenge is crucial if we want this generation to have a healthy childhood, finish school and fulfill their potential.
