  • Insufficient Nutrition
On a recent visit to the Antoshka orphanage a Peace Corp volunteer estimated that the babies are receiving 50% of the minimum required daily nutrients, which means that they do not receive proper nutrition.
  • Low Weight
Children aged 2 years typically weigh between 14 and 16 pounds (as compared with 28 pounds at the 50th percentile). Babies are bald, with skinny legs and distended tummies associated with malnutrition.
  • Rickets
This is common due to lack of vitamin D. No milk and not enough sunshine.
  • Not Enough Formula
The babies receive a minimal number of baby formula feeds a day and their diet is then supplemented with sugar water mix and mashed potato. Only babies under 4 months receive baby formula.
  • No Meat, Dairy Or Juice
The children are fed a staple diet of bread, potato, soup and tea. Children aged 7 years interviewed at the Roschitsa Orphanage had never seen ice cream or a banana.
  • Misdiagnosed
Babies have been misdiagnosed due to lack of thriving.
