Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

In reference to “Lesotho Nutrition Initiative Packs 60,000 Meals” published on Oct. 31

The biggest error is the meals will feed 2,000 children, not 2,000 families. Also not sure of source of median income at $245. I have never seen that figure in my life.A verage families is something like $450.

But, it is the cavalier tone of the article that is most embarrassing.

Meals containing nutritional supplements to combat malnutrition and stunting is missing, just called nutritious meals.

It is the Kingdom of Lesotho.

What does double-landlocked mean?

The AIDS rate of 23.9 percent is for adults 15-49 years of age.

0-5 years not 1-5.

The rate of malnutrition and stunting is over 30 percent nationwide.
