Hungary Helps Continues its Sustainable Feeding Program for School Kids in No. 2 River Community


Hungary Helps, in collaboration with Caritas Freetown, has continued its sustainable feeding program at the Kiera Chaplin Desert Flower School in Number 2 River, Western Rural District, Sierra Leone. The project, titled “Sustainable School-Based Feeding of School-going Pupils,” aims to enhance the nutrition, health, and academic performance of students through regular and nutritious meals.

The project’s core objectives include promoting access to nutritious meals, improving student health and well-being, and enhancing academic performance. Emphasizing local sourcing and sustainable farming practices, the initiative aims to address both short-term needs and long-term resilience against climate change impacts.

Now in its third week, the program benefits 400 school-aged children, providing them with access to nutritious meals. Joseph Sesay, a class six pupil, expressed gratitude, stating, “I want to express my sincere thanks to Hungary Helps because some of us don’t bring enough lunch to school since my parents are not financially strong.” He emphasized the importance of continuing the feeding program for their education.

Elizabeth Koya Alie, Head of the Nursery Department at Kiera Chaplin Desert Flower School, expressed joy at the initiative, acknowledging the vulnerability of many students who often attend school without food. She hopes that the program will extend beyond the Lenten season, providing sustained support to the students.

As the feeding program continues to make a positive impact on the lives of students, Hungary Helps and its partners are committed to ensuring the sustainability and success of the initiative. Through community engagement and support, they aim to create lasting benefits for the students of Kiera Chaplin Desert Flower School and beyond.
