Poverty affects the health, especially of children. malnourished children are sick, weak and have learning disabilities. Many times poor parents take their children out of school, also at a very young age, to send them to work, beg or collect garbage. Water poisoned by chemicals and pesticides makes even more sick. Even boiling the water doesn't help very much.
Our programme "Yummy! meals for schools" is providing daily healthy meals for thousands of children in schools and dormitories in and around Mae Sot. An independent report proved that the children benefitting from our programme were significantly healthier than others who didn't. Additionally we deliver daily many hundred liter drinking water to the schools.
