Vietnam’s Nutrition Clubs: Helping mothers and their children thrive
“My first child used to be malnourished and frequently sick,” Pen tells us. The young mother joined a World Vision-run Nutrition Club in Vietnam’s Hàm Thuận Bắc district. Now, five years later, both her children, Thuyết and Truyền, are growing up fast and healthy. In early 2015, Pen took her first child Thuyết to the local health centre for vaccination. Only then was the nearly one year old baby diagnosed as being severely malnourished.
