Free a child trapped by hunger

When children are undernourished, they have no energy to play. No energy to learn, to grow, to go to school.

Without enough nutritious food, a child has less hope of improving their life, they get caught in a cycle of poverty – trapped by hunger.

Saving a child’s life comes first. But it’s only part of the story. Your support can help prevent hunger from happening in the first place, by:

  • providing families with enough highly nutritious food and healthcare to treat an undernourished child and giving them the strength to build long-term health.
  • educating families about preparing healthy food and practicing proper breastfeeding techniques via home visits and case management for newborns and vulnerable children.
  • training local staff in poor communities to treat, refer and protect families from the threat of disease and malnutrition.
  • promoting good practice and increasing quality standards around water, sanitation and hygiene.

Please act now. You can help free a child trapped by hunger.
