With the support of Fundación Mapfre, the NU3 Foundation is developing the “Centro Integral la Chinita”, in the Barranquilla district of the city of Malambo, where it provides comprehensive care to boys and girls from birth to 12 years, young people, pregnant women, nursing mothers and family units.
The center performs a decisive role in community socialization, by putting in place strategies for sound nutrition, well-being, education, and earning an income.
Among other life matters, the center addresses questions relating to prenatal care and nursing, sexual and reproductive rights, the prevention of teenage pregnancy, the promotion of children’s rights, training in various trades to generate income, the promotion of healthy life habits including food safety and the preparation of inexpensive recipes.
The NU3 Foundation was founded in 2005 in Barranquilla, Colombia. It provides the nutritional and energizing diets which it found were needed for the normal growth and development of many of the child population living in Barranquilla and the Department of the Atlantic.
