Projects to increase accessibility of protein for children and fund nutritional research
SPRINGDALE, Ark., October 18, 2018 /3BL Media/ – One million children under 5 years of age in Nepal (or 36 percent of the population) suffer chronic malnutrition and 10 percent suffer from acute malnutrition. The difficulty in acquiring protein is a contributing factor to the nutrition gap in the south Asian country. In an effort to help combat those issues in Nepal, as well as Honduras and Ethiopia, Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN) announced today a series of grants to OneEgg, a non-profit organization that delivers eggs to children in need.
In an effort to combat chronic malnutrition in Nepal, Tyson Foods is partnering with OneEgg and Shreenagar Agro to supply eggs to children in Nepal.
Moushumi Shrestha and her husband Satish, who together own Shreenagar Agro, have been providing eggs to children in Nepal since the 2015 earthquake. Currently they are reaching 700 children a week and hope to provide eggs to 7,000 children over the next two years.

Solutions can take many forms. Sharing knowledge to give a hand-up, not a hand out, is one example. Another is the small acts of neighborliness and kindness that allow people to keep their dignity.
