    • The relief of poverty, sickness and distress. Poor communities suffer from malnutrition, they often have little or no food from one day to another leading to ill health and severe distress.
    • The protection and preservation of health. Malnutrition is a common occurrence particularly in rural parts of the province causing poor health and other complications.
    • The advancement of education. Only around half of school age children receive an education and those fortunate enough only attend either morning or afternoon sessions.
