The American foundation SPOON is comprised of a network of nutrition experts (doctors and nutritionists), responsible for training nurses in around a dozen countries and improving children’s nutrition.

Project supported: nutrition training for nurses in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
The aim is to improve the nutrition of children with disabilities and orphaned children.

SPOON has identified 170,000 orphaned children in Vietnam, the majority of whom have disabilities and eating disorders for which they are not given treatment. The Foundation’s grant will enable 100 Vietnamese nurses to be given training in nutrition and will provide nutritional support to 700 children, nearly 400 of whom are living in orphanages.

Social impact: 700 children aged under 18 will benefit from the project.
