Question: “How has nutritional support improved the quality of life at CSPEI?”
In our after school program, we have observed that the children are more alert, more focused, and perform better since taking the nutritional supplements.
The needy families and children from the villages of South Romania that we support are the poorest of poor. It is not uncommon for a family to have 10 to 12 children and 2 or 3 generations living in a small 1 to 2 bedroom house with a dirt floor. Due to very little and poor quality of food, the vitamins are a blessing and are helping the children to have clear minds and good energy levels.
In general, the children’s health has improved and they seem to be more joyful and have more energy. Many parents have seen healthy changes in their children and have expressed their sincere appreciation for the nutritional supplements. We thank you MannaRelief and may God bless you on behalf of the children.
