Unhealthy eating is one of the main causes of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke, heart diseases, and certain cancers. Good nutrition knowledge accompanied by healthy eating greatly contributes to reducing the risks for NCDs. WBA conduct NCDs risk assessment through the non-invasive body composition measurement and thereafter provide nutrition counselling.
Centres such as orphanages and charitable feeding programmes often struggle to meet their groceries supply. Groceries leftovers from grocery stores may be effectively utilised to address this need. Well Being Africa facilitates the effective and efficient distribution of such groceries for optimal use.
