Support for Breastfeeding
In early August TBC and partners organised a series events in the camps around World Breastfeeding Week (WBW).
The WBW is an annual celebration held in August in more than 120 countries to promote the tremendous health benefits of breastfeeding infants.
During August TBC’s nutrition campaign was also busy with conducting nutrition education, distributing BabyBright supplementary food and visiting homes with malnourished children and pregnant women, and visiting nursery schools as part of ensuring children are receiving nutritious meals in schools.
TBC’s nutrition programme works to complement its food assistance to the camps and is targeted at vulnerable groups such as children, pregnant women and nursing mothers, and people with debilitating health conditions.
