Commitment to Action

Improving Malnutrition and Maternal Health in Lima

Commitment by

Batey Relief Alliance

In 2013, the Batey Relief Alliance (BRA) committed to scale a program to improve early childhood and maternal nutrition from Haiti and the Dominican Republic to 19 vulnerable urban communities Lima, Peru. BRA will distribute vitamin and deworming medication on a quarterly basis for two years to select schools, medical clinics, and community centers that serve children and women. In addition, BRA will train community health promoters to educate their peers about health crises and prevention techniques including hygiene, prenatal care, water-borne diseases, sexually-transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS. Over the course of two years, BRA will reach 2,000 children (ages 5 and under) and 450 pregnant and nursing women.
