In southeast Peru, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (MIDIS) are improving the health of young students. Through the Qali Warma National School Feeding Program, the two organizations have collaborated to donate 34 organic gardens to schools in two provinces.
