Indonesia: kids with a healthier start on life Wednesday, April 6, 2011
CWS's Therapeutic Feeder Center helps equip mothers and save young lives in Indonesia.
Childhood malnutrition can have devastating lifelong effects: organ failure, brain development issues, blindness and other maladies.
In one of Indonesia's poorest communities, CWS fights malnutrition with a Therapeutic Feeding Center. Here, during their 40-day stay, children are given high-nutrient baby food, while their mothers are better equipped to provide nutritious meals at home.
CWS works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice around the world.
