Already for a few days, the Patronage has been sending to us semolina for the children. To our portion, we add water so that it can be enough for all children. After having made the solution, the share is 3 tea spoons for each child. We also receive milk. 3–4 glasses for the children up to 3 years old. We do not have milk everyday.
