Description

http://www.ChildFund.org -- At Early Child Care and Development Centers across drought-stricken northern Kenya, ChildFund is providing a daily meal to young children and monitoring their health status.

Children who are severely malnourished at a young age often suffer developmental deficiencies the rest of their lives.
