The health and development of young children is most at risk in Batticaloa. Over 27% of children are underweight. Caused by inadequate food and lack of knowledge, parents are struggling to do their best. ChildFund will continue to support families with home gardens and milking cows and cattle management training. We will continue our partnership with ECD centres to deliver awareness programmes to parents on child nutrition and rehabilitation of malnourished children. This programme will be extended to encompass basic nutrition education for more parents and caregivers.
