Staying healthy

Share This Post

Three nourishing meals a day and a daily dose of vitamins and minerals has ensured that the children at COLT have remained in good health during the Covid pandemic. Growing up in poor socio-economic settings means that life for our children is characterised by hunger and malnutrition.

Children need a balanced diet with enough vitamins and minerals to maintain healthy growth and development. Last year it was decided that in addition to the standard Covid protocols that we are required to adhere to, we would provide our children with a vitamin and mineral supplement. Newlands Pharmacy has donated a regular supply of vitamin and mineral supplements for the past 10 months and each morning COLT teachers administer it as part of the children’s daily routine.
