UNICEF distribution of Gulazik in Talas in Kyrgyzstan. Due to the huge quantity of tea that is drank in Kyrgyzstan with meals, more than half of pregnant women and children are affected by anemia and crucial micronutrients deficiency. Apparently tea hinders the assimilation of the iron you find in the food. So UNICEF has started a pilot programme in the Talas province distributing little green packets like what the child is holding to children aged between 6 months and 2 years. Every Gulazik (the name comes from dried meet that nomad Kyrgyz used to keep handy while travelling and add to soup to make it richer) packet contains, iron, zinc, vitamins and other micronutrients necessary for the correct development of a child.
