Our goal is to “Break the cycle of malnutrition one life at a time.” We do this through three programs:
1. Inpatient Rehabilitation: Children in life threatening stages of malnutrition are admitted, along with a caregiver, to our center where they receive necessary medical treatment, nutritional supplements and training for the caregiver.
2. Outpatient Early Intervention Clinic: Satellite clinics are set up in outlying communities where children in earlier
stages of malnutrition that do not require medical intervention are seen every 2 weeks. At each visit children are assessed, parents attend nutrition classes and food supplements are dispensed to be prepared at home.
3. Community Health & Nutrition Classes: Families discharged from our Inpatient Program are required to give back to their communities by scheduling and promoting a class taught by SHC Staff covering Health, Hygiene, Nutrition and Discipleship.
