Effectively treating child malnutrition

Mwanzia with CHW Mutinda
Mwanzia with CHW Mutinda

Mwanzia was very thin and hungry when she was started on Plumpy’nut provided by the the Global Health Partnerships therapeutic feeding program. In fact, she was on the edge of survival. Thanks to your GlobalGiving donations, Mwanzia (shown in the photo with community health worker Mutinda) is growing and healthy. Over the past year 90 children like Mwanzia, all suffering from acute malnutrition, were treated and cured in the GHP therapeutic feeding program. Another 11 are improving and continuing to receive treatment.

Your generous support is what turns a child who is thin, undernourished and hungry into one who is healthy and thriving. With your help we will continue to provide relief from the hunger and malnutrition of the poorest families in Kenyan villages, effectively and efficiently.

Over 95% of the donations that we receive go directly into program services!
