Free $5 raffle ticket that helps HIAM Health - Timor Leste for every $150* purchase. Please contact us if you'd like to purchase more tickets.
Currently in Timor Leste, 58% of children under age 5 are stunted, 19% of children under age 5 are wasted, and 45% of children under age 5 are underweight. With 200,000 children in this age group, this translates to 25% of Timor-Leste's population; an alarming reality. HIAM Health is an already established program in Dili dedicated to addressing this problem.
To combat malnutrition, HIAM has developed a unique program - delivered to mothers by their peers in a "hands on" approach. Since 2009, its rehabilitation and education programs have steadily helped children get healthy, and mothers have been equipped with preventative strategies to break the malnutrition cycle.
At the residential in-patient facility, intensive 30-day training and skills development programs for mothers are conducted. Mothers are taught how to grow crops and how to prepare and cook a balanced diet.
Three months after a child is discharged, follow-up home visits are conducted. With an 80% success rate of a child sustaining or gaining weight, educating mothers in our food and nutrition workshops is the sustainable way forward for a healthy nation.
