Providing Daily Hot Meals in Chechnya
The conflict in Chechnya has deprived thousands of children of a normal childhood. Growing
up with war and insecurity, their lives have been marked by poverty and turmoil. Instead of
running from classroom to playground they seek refuge in makeshift homes and worry about
where their next meal will come from.
Poor general health is common in Chechen children, usually caused by an absence of
nutritious food in their diet. Few can afford to eat three meals a day and as a result, suffer
from a variety of health problems, some of which directly affect their academic performance.
