    By - Dr. Angelo Tomedi - Project Leader

    Feeding hungry children for the holidays
    By - Dr. Angelo Tomedi - Project leader
    The severe drought in the semi-arid region of eastern Kenya has subsided, with enough rain recently for some crop production. The quantity of food produced, however, has not been sufficient for many families to feed their children well. Here in the USA the holiday season that we celebrate this time of year coincides with a...

    Local health workers are key to success
    By - Dr. Angelo Tomedi - Project leader
    The poorest children at highest risk for hunger and malnutrition often live in isolated villages far from a clinic or hospital. Finding those who are most in need of treatment can be challenging. Once the malnourished children are found, their growth and response to treatment can be difficult to monitor. The...

Kuvuthi’s grandmother takes care of her but cannot afford to buy infant formula, which is expensive and only available in...

    By - Brian Johnson - Treasurer, Global Health Partnerships
    In Kenya about 1 in 10 children die before reaching 5 years of age, and more than half of those childhood deaths are from starvation. Recent studies have shown that a community-based therapeutic feeding program, like the one established by GHP in Kenya, can provide very effective treatment. Most children will improve and...
