Nutritional Recovery Center: This program consists of providing 24-hour care to the children admitted to the foundation. These children are the most severe cases of malnutrition to which we attend in the institution. We provide the necessary daily amounts of food and vitamins to all children admitted here.
They are also constantly monitored by a pediatrician, two doctors of general medicine, four nurses and five nannies that care for our babies.
Ambulatory control: It is here that the most severe cases that warrant admission are detected. The babies that do not need to be admitted are still evaluated on an outpatient basis every 15 days or one visit per month, depending on the doctor's evaluation. The babies in ambulatory control are generally moderately malnourished, which can be controlled from home with the free advice of our nutritional medical consultation that is always provided.
The families of ambulatory controls are given a basket of food that has been donated to us. The products we deliver are: oil, beans, oats, cereal, milk, pasta, eggs, frozen chicken, frozen fish heads, frozen sausages, rice and lentils.
Children's dining rooms: Love Link Inc. supports three children's dining rooms where basic food is provided to more than 300 children between the ages of one and sixteen years old.
We have two dining rooms in Isla La Calzada, located in La Paz, El Salvador, where more than 180 children receive care. The island has five communities, and we are currently working in two of them. Our vision is to eventually extend to all five communities. Lunch is provided Monday through Saturday. The volunteers from the area are responsible for preparing the food for the people there.
The other dining room is located in Valle del Sol, Apopa, San Salvador, El Salvador. They serve more than 190 children between the ages of 3 and 16 years old. It is a dining room that is located in one of the communities of high delinquency risk in the municipality. We support them by providing lunch Monday through Friday. There are volunteers from the area that are also responsible for preparing the food, as in our other community.
Medical Days: Monthly, we mobilize and attend to families in different sectors of El Salvador. We decided to start this program due to the troublesome situations of people that have made efforts to connect with Love Link Inc. On these days, we have a morning of free medical consultation and physical therapy.
The places we visit in El Salvador are the communities listed: Tacuba, Ahuachapan; El Carrizal, Nahuizalco located in Sonsonate; and San Vicente.
