Regina and Beatrice (see photos) are bright young girls who have recovered from malnutrition thanks to your generous support. They are among the many survivors of the devastation problem of child malnutrition who have been treated in the Global Health Partnerships (GHP) therapeutic feeding program.
Food insecurity is a daily challenge for families in this part of drought-prone Kenya. The volunteer community health workers (CHWs) who were trained by GHP weigh and measure young children in the villages so that children like Regina and Beatrice can be helped with a feeding program before they succumb to severe illness or death. Monitoring of child growth is done in the villages as well as the clinic. More children continue to be added to the feeding program, but others “graduate” and live healthy, active and productive lives.
Hunger does not take a vacation for the holidays. GHP will continue to feed the hungry, treat the malnourished and ill, and monitor their progress during the holidays and throughout the year with your support. Over 95% of the donations that GHP receives go directly into program services!
