Put an End to Hunger and Malnutrition
When children do not have enough food to eat, or the food available to them is deficient in nutrients, malnourishment and chronic health issues become a serious and potentially life-threatening reality.
To fight this, we partner with local churches around the world to implement early intervention health and nutrition initiatives providing individualized care and attention for millions of children affected by poverty
Our health and nutrition initiatives help meet the life-threatening needs of hungry children, while also providing preventive care to support long-term wellness.
Our frontline church partners are trained to identify child malnutrition and take immediate action to address it. Often that means a program of emergency feeding and vitamin supplements for a severely malnourished child, as well as working with the child’s caregivers to ensure that meals at home meet nutritional needs.
Additionally, our church partners provide the children with regular nutritious meals and snacks on program activity days and teach the children about the importance of a balanced diet, as well as ways the children can eat healthy outside of program activity days.
By giving to our Health and Nutrition Fund, or by sponsoring a child, you are providing supplemental food, vitamins and medical care to malnourished children and are supporting our therapeutic feeding and food stability initiatives for infants and newborns.
Your donation will safeguard children from illnesses that hamper their early childhood development and threaten their lives. With your support, we can provide poor children around the world the nutritious food, medical care, and health and hygiene training they need to survive and thrive.
