When we work with corporate
partners, we can do amazing things. Thanks to Food for Famine’s generous
contribution of nutritious emergency food, we have been able to help children,
families and communities suffering from severe acute malnutrition. The donation
of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF) has dramatically changed communities
and brought hope in an otherwise grim situation.
In Malawi, malnutrition
rates among infants and young children are high and accounts for about half of
all child deaths. Thanks to our
partnership with Food for Famine, we are working together to change these
alarming statistics and give children a healthy start. This life saving gift is changing lives for
children like Loveness and Miracle. Watch Miracle’s life changing story now.
Loveness, a little 2 year
old girl in Malawi had extremely swollen limbs which deeply concerned her
mother so she took her to a nearby health center. Loveness was malnourished and was immediately
admitted to an outpatient health program that provided weekly rations of RUTF.
After only 2 weeks, Loveness’s mother saw improvements and Loveness was gaining
weight. Today, Loveness is healthy and
continues to gain weight thanks to RUTF!
We are very grateful for our partnership with Food for Famine. Together
we can change lives and help children and families around the world.
