Oriol Obenson is 8 years old and he is in second grade. He explained that his parents make many sacrifices to send him to school. The school breakfast program supported by Holt International Children's Services is a blessing and a great relief for his parents.
Obenson demonstrates a good physical and mental health. According to his report, no symptoms were revealed against him and he had been vaccinated like many other children in his age against certain diseases. As food prices become very expensive and the level of vulnerability is so high, he needed to join a school nutrition program to prevent malnutrition.
Obenson?s family lives in Bourjolly not far from the Bigarousse community. There are five children in the family. His father is working for a pittance that cannot provide basic needs for his family.
