The community like others is equally exposed to most common health challenges experienced as a result of dietary imbalances and food inadequacy. Malnutrition is therefore a common phenomenon within the surviving adults and girl/boy children within the community. HIV Aids has not spared taking its toll from either the children or adults within the community. A challenge which has severely and negatively impacted on the affected and the infected because of the stigma suffered from the negative attitude when it comes to openly declaring the ones status. Preventive and curative health needs are of a concern and necessity. It is on the basis of this understanding that IIMSAM prioritized the community and the estate for such an immediate attention hence action…A total 2000gms (40 sachets each 50 gms) of Spirulina powder and another 2000 gms fresh Spirulina thus a total 2000 doses of Spirulina was distributed to benefit over 250 children and over 130 adults ,courtesy of IIMSAM. A major more inclusive feeding program is planned for the following month to benefit more people. The group in attendance was treated on fresh Spirulina doses and a “pilau speciality” lunch.
