Our Bread for Life feeding schemes consists of 11 soup kitchens for patients reporting to clinics for long-term treatments, notably HIV/ARV, chronic diseases, and TB patients. This feeding scheme is not a simple matter of providing food for the poor and needy in our area: it is a health initiative with very far-reaching consequences including better treatment compliance and an improved patient immune system.
The food menu consists of rice, lentils and beef soya mince, soup, juice, immune-meals, and peanut butter. This food is well received by the clinic attendees and the nutritional benefit to the patients has increased.
Food is served by a patient- volunteer chosen by our associate clinicians and this provides an add-on benefit of employment and purpose to a patients’ recovery.
