Regular access to healthy and nutritious food
CAF provides basic meals regularly to the children living in its residents. The sponsorship of "Special Meals" enables the hostel to provide more variety, tastier, and more nutritious meals on a more regular basis. Based on over 25 years of practical experience with donors and potential donors, this particular Donation Option is one of the most popular choices that people like to donate to. They like to donate sponsored special meals for special occasions like birthdays, holidays, holidays, anniversaries, festivals, functions, etc. Whenever a "Special Meal" is donated, we prepare the sponsored meal in our kitchen by our staff member cooks. The extra required food items are purchased for the sponsored meal that day, the meal is prepared, and finally served to all the residential children.
