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.
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.
This is common due to lack of vitamin D. No milk
and not enough sunshine.
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.
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.
Babies have been misdiagnosed due to lack of thriving.
