Although I hold qualifications in Food Science, Nutrition, and Strategic Management, the issues of malnutrition and general poor health are not academic for me because I have witnessed and managed malnourished children in my work as a nutritionist in the Ministry of Health and Child Care and outside of it.
I know what it is like to hold and manage a malnourished child, and what happens to them when they do not get adequate and nutritious food.
Our work impacts my family, friends, and community—and as such Zimbabweans are helping one another, and taking responsibility in enhancing our nutritional well being, reducing the need for handouts.
My hope is that everybody in my country has access to fortified foods. Nutrition is my passion, and I want to play my part with PHC in ensuring that people have access to safe and nutritious food and free from nutrient deficiencies.
