Our Achievements So Far:

Training Local Heroes: We have trained 105 community health service workers and nutrition mobilisers in best practices for preventing and managing malnutrition cases.

Reaching the Vulnerable: Through monthly door-to-door screenings, we have identified 692 children with severe acute malnutrition and ensured they received the appropriate treatment.

Supporting Mothers and Children: We have reached 2,272 moderately malnourished children, all of whom are either undergoing or have completed their treatment. Additionally, 599 moderately malnourished pregnant and lactating women have received targeted support.

Promoting Healthy Eating: We conduct sessions of cooking demonstrations of tom brown and group counseling on infant and young child feeding to encourage healthy eating habits in our communities.

Our work has been possible thanks to the support of UNOCHA through the National Humanitarian Fund. However, there is still much more to be done. We need your help to continue providing these essential services and expanding our reach to more children, women, and communities in need.
