Ugandan children thank you for their improved health
The Food for the Hungry (FH) office in Piswa, Uganda, tracks the weight of children who were underweight and received deworming medication. Because of generous partners like you, medication was provided to these children that produced excellent preliminary results.
Here’s what the children have to say about their health after receiving the deworming medication.
“Before FH came in to support me with Albendazole drugs during Child Days Plus, my stomach used to bubble so much. I am now healthy, eat well without stomach problems and have added weight. Thanks to FH for the support.”
—Victor Chemos, 12
“I used to get stomach pains before Child Days Plus, in which FH administered deworming, but nowadays I am well and have put on more weight. I study very well and sleep well, thanks FH for being concerned about the well-being of my life. Much appreciation from my family.”
—Winny Chemutai, 15
“Thanks FH for supporting me to have good health. Before the Child Days Plus, I irregularly attended school and was always sickly. I had sleepless nights, but after the Child Days Plus in which FH supported with deworming tablets, I am well and God bless FH forever.”
—Joy Chelimo, 11
“I used to scratch myself so much because of itching on my skin, and I irregularly attended school because my classmates used to laugh at me. This made me perform poorly in my academics but after the Child Days Plus, in which FH supported with deworming tablets, I no longer have itching skin, and I attend school more regularly and hope my education shall improve.”
—Sarah Chelangat, 10
“I am very grateful to FH support with deworming tablets; I had been sickly and most times took medication because my parents thought it was malaria. But after taking the deworming tablets from school, I became well and do not take medication anymore. I am gaining weight and attend school more regularly.”
—Sam Cherotich, 12
