For thirty years, the Christina Noble association has been helping disadvantaged children in Mongolia and Vietnam through programmes that promote access to healthcare, education and community development assistance. More than 900,000 children have benefited from its support.

Project supported: implementation of a nutritional programme in the canteen of Son Ca nursery school, Vietnam. Supported by the Foundation, the project’s objective is to provide the nursery’s 70 children aged 3 to 5 with two healthy and balanced meals a day and to facilitate improved learning conditions.

In one of the poorest areas of Ho Chi Minh City, many children live in extreme poverty and lack access to high-quality medical care and food. These children are admitted to Son Ca nursery school which provides them with nutritional monitoring. Menus are developed by a medical team to address deficiencies, and two balanced meals are distributed to them every day.
