Our work in Niger is far from over. We continue to see food shortages and malnutrition that affect not only individual families and villages, but the entire country. That being said, keeping people alive remains our top priority, and our teams are dedicated to making this happen.
Thanks to you, we were able to do some incredible life-saving work in Niger:
As 2013 progresses, we will continue these successful efforts to eradicate malnutrition. Plus, because of your donation, we have been able to start a new program to address food security in Niger. We are now working in the regions of Maradi and Zinder – where malnutrition is highest for children under five, and particularly for children under age two. This program is especially important for women and girls, too. In our nutrition education classes, they learn how to diversify their food sources, and how to stay healthy during pregnancies. They also learn new ways to generate income, and diversify food production to feed their families.
Because of your contribution we are able to keep moving forward with our emergency relief and long-term programs in Niger. Your support has touched many lives and you have brought hope to one of the world's toughest places.
