Dietary Deficiencies in Myanmar

20th November 2010

Poverty is widespread in Myanmar (formerly Burma) and many health problems are related to poor diet. Proper nutrition is particularly important for growing children.

The 'Road to Mandalay' Social Contribution includes initiatives to improve nutrition and the photograph above shows a group of about 250 children being given a meal of Congee (a rice porridge) in Taung Be village, Bagan on 20th November 2010.
