FOOD & NURITION FOR PEOPLE LIVING WIH HIV and AIDS IN KARACHI
People Living with HIV and AIDS (PLWHAs) can improve the quality of their lives through healthy eating. Yet healthy food is sually expensive and often out of reach of poor HIV and AIDS sufferers. This project found a solution in soybeans, which are cheap and nourishing. With support from the American Soy Association and working in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Pakistan, AMAL identified, networked and trained 25 PLWHAs to improve their diet.
How the project worked:
- We distributed a monthly ration of soybeans to each participant and guided him/her on how to turn them into nourishing meals.
- We assessed the health of each participant when he/she joined the project and monitored it again after five months.
