Healthy Living Within Everyone’s Reach
We exist to make sure that everyone has access to nutrient-dense foods, especially those that need it most.
Who we are
Happy Healthy Human is an NPC, founded in May 2021, that exists to make healthy food accessible to all, especially those who need it most - orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) in South Africa.Our NPC partners with other NGOs/NPOs to support our dream to eradicate poverty and malnutrition, especially in children aged 0-18 years old.
Statistics show that over
10 million children in South Africa live below the poverty line.
OF THE COUNTRY'S POPULATION
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), well nourished children are 33% more likely to escape poverty as adults. On the other hand, childhood malnutrition can lead to a lifetime of consequences including lower IQ and cognitive development, weaker immune systems and greater risks of developing diabetes and cancer.
There is a global increase on the availability and provision of processed foods which are high in sugar and low in nutrients, especially among the poor resulting in stunted growth, body wasting and weight gain.
THIS HAS RESULTED IN HIGH MALNUTRITION & STUNTED GROWTH
This is why we ensure that the food we donate comprises of nutrient-rich meals. This results in tummies that are fully fed with the right food thereby combating malnutrition and growth issues and increasing overall immunity.
