World Vision has embarked on implementing its “kwigisha abaturage iziko” program, in order to fight malnutrition.
World vision in Rukara sector Kayonza district is going to put into place its program “Kwigisha abaturage iziko” whereby families with malnourished children will be gathering to learn preparing well balanced meals after every 12 days.
Appolon Mwumvaneza World vision representative in Rukara sector justifies “Residents have food but consider it to be for the poor. Once they are taught how to prepare balanced diet from this food, they will be able to fight malnutrition than they had never imagined.”
While there are some children in the different parts of the country, Dr. Agnes Binagwaho Minister of health responds that it does not mean there is famine in Rwanda but only some residents who do not know how to prepare balanced foods from the food they have.
While residents in various parts of the country think that the poor cannot have balanced diets, nutritionists confirm that a good diet is not prepared from expensive foods only.
Rukara sector residents hope that after attending “Kwigisha abaturage iziko”, they will be able to prepare balanced foods for children and teach their neighbors.
