Summary

IMC fights malnutrition and food insecurity by bringing nutrient-rich food to more than 280,000 war-affected people in northern Uganda.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The World Food Program estimates that 68% of northern Uganda’s population is food insecure due to years of conflict, deep poverty, flooding, and drought. Approximately two million people were displaced in Uganda’s civil war, 1.2 million of which are in the north. Those suffering from malnutrition need nutrient-rich, therapeutic foods to recover. An estimated 50% of the population is reliant on food aid.

How will this project solve this problem?

This program creates a long-term solution to nutrient deficiencies by diversifying local crops, while treating existing deficiencies through supplemental feeding.

Potential Long Term Impact

IMC trains community members in agriculture production and healthy diet and teaches health workers to identify and treat malnutrition.
