Food and Nutrition

PROVIDING FOOD AND NUTRITION

Nutrition is vital to human well-being. However, the prevalence of malnutrition worldwide especially in developing countries is staggering. Overwhelming number of people around the world are afflicted by undernutrition, micronutrient deficiency, and overweight or obesity. Poor nutrition in the first 3 of child harms their physical and cognitive development.

It is evidenced that:

“Malnutrition has lasting consequences on children such as permanent brain damage, stunted growth and psychological malfunction”.

Food insecurity and poor nutrition are eroding the quality of life especially the worsening of health and limiting economic productivity resulting in high levels of poverty rates. Girls and women’s health is devasted by lack of access to food resulting in malnutrition and in return poor health for them and their children.

Our projects are identifying innovative ways to empower women and improve nutrition for women, children and the whole household, reducing poverty and enhancing health, and education outcomes.

Through our nutrition programmes, we are providing already raw, prepared and packed meals to poor families in deprived communities in developing countries.

HOW ARE WE DOING THIS?

Rescue Mission

are supporting many communities in Asia, Africa and South America with life-saving nutritious foods such as therapeutic milk for babies and children and raw for food such as bags of rice, maize, millet and wheat as well as tin foods. We are supporting communities to address devastating effects of conflicts and disasters that prevent families to get food, putting whole communities especially large numbers of children at risk of malnutrition.

Build A Safe School Project

The Story of Girls’ Education Project

In Haiti, Burkina Faso and Mozambique

Malnutrition is killing 1000s of children everyday and needlessly. Our “Feed a Child Project” in Liberia, Gambia, Peru and Guatemala is feeding many babies and toddlers and helping them to grow healthily and keeping well. A large number of children do not have the right food to grow up healthy and strong. Many children are malnourished and suffering from disease because of poor diet and starvation.

The Baby Milk and Fruit products and high energy peanut paste donated to communities has enabled mothers to feed their children and so they can also keep healthy and be cured from the impact of malnutrition.

Our Children Nutrition Education is helping families to feed their children healthily with fresh fruits so that children receive the micronutrients needed to prevent malnutrition and illnesses. Your donation is delivering life-saving food for poor and malnourished children, as well as support long-term, country-wide sustainable nutrition programmes for mothers and babies to prevent hunger and malnutrition for all children under five.
