Feeding these patients at the outpatients' clinics themselves not only provides for a basic need but ensures a full stomach on which to take their medication.

With chronic treatments such as HIV/Aids and Tuberculosis (TB), compliance is key. The promise of a nourishing meal at the clinic encourages adherence to lengthy treatment programmes. Statistics by nutritionists at some of our clinics show that in certain areas, over 50% of registered patients are so malnourished that they are classified as marasmic or kwashiorkor. Many treatments are helped if the patient can be supported nutritionally, which is what we as a charity can help with.

We provide soup, bread, peanut butter and vitamin-enriched fruit juice to patients in the waiting rooms, and where possible, additional nutritional support in the form of immune-boosting porridge to take home. We are being partnered in this mission by Blue Ribbon Bread.
