    Nutrition and Education

    • Nearly 1,000 orphans and preschool children received at least one meal per day at one of three feeding centers that make up Heather Chimhoga Orphan Care (HCOC).
    • The introduction of moringa into their diet has improved the overall health of the orphans, with significantly reduced visits to the HCOC clinic in 2014.
    • 682 orphans attended school at one of the four nearby government schools in 2014. 239 of these students rely on HCOC to pay their school fees.

    Medical, Social & Spiritual

    • An on-site, full-time nurse promotes early detection and prompt management of opportunistic infections and HIV / AIDS.
    • There has been a marked improvement in drug adherence evidenced by a reduction in school dropouts related to poor health.
    • In 2014, there were zero deaths among those children receiving care from HCOC.
    • Routine home visits are being done to detect and address living conditions that interfere with the positive health, social and spiritual development of the orphans. Local pastors are visiting the orphans weekly at school.
