In 2011, financial help from the JFP Foundation made it possible to set up a provisional nutrition centre in an existing maternity hospital, which was fully refurbished. Some 65 children suffering from severe malnutrition were fed (with maize flour produced on site) and cared for three times a week and also had a medical examination, vitamins and free healthcare. The weakest mothers were also fed, and twice a month they received training in nutrition and hygiene.
The maternity ward and nutritional centre were fully operational in 2012. The activities include consultations for infants and regular home visits, the distribution of balanced meals to sick children, purchasing medicines (with free medical care), making women aware of hygiene, diet, family planning, small-scale livestock farming (goats, etc.).
The financing for 2013 was dedicated to building a kitchen and a covered refectory, and to the corresponding equipment. Part of the money helped to create a small fish-farming lake, as a contribution to the centre's supply of fresh protein.
