What Good Are New Foods If You Don’t Know What to
Do with Them?
Malnourishment is a major contributor to under-five mortality due to a greater susceptibility to infections and slow recovery from illness. SurfAid’s “hand up, not a hand out” approach relies on education to empower communities to make change - because sometimes it takes more than your best mate’s assurance to try something new.
To increase access to nutritious foods, SurfAid helps establish nutrition gardens and teaches families to cook with the vegetables they grow. We hold training workshops, make seeds available, and promote gardening as a routine community activity which leads to healthier children and healthier communities.
This holiday season, please consider supporting SurfAid’s Mother and Child Health Programmes and our wish for #SickWavesHealthyVillages.
to your support, we are already halfway to our goal of
raising enough funds to support two Mother and Child Health
Programmes! Along with improved nutrition, your
tax-deductible gift will ensure our families have access to
clean water & sanitation and basic healthcare. These
simple steps can prevent up to 70% of health-related deaths
in remote communities.
