Summary

In northern Darfur, over 200,000 mothers and young children suffer from malnutrition and lack of medical aid. RI's mobile medical clinics provide health services to more than 72,000 displaced people.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Much of Darfur suffers from malnutrition due to inadequate food supply and nutritional content. Health issues stemming from this situation are causing serious problems for expectant mothers. Youth mortality is very high. Our health/nutrition program is working to eradicate both problems among young children and mothers.

How will this project solve this problem?

Relief International is working to support the nutritional status of malnourished children (5-year-olds) as well as women who are pregnant or lactating. RI is also providing health services to nearly 100,000 women and children in IDP camps.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through permanent clinics, regular medical treatment, reproductive health support, nutritional supplements and health training of community health workers and birth attendants, RI is improving the health condition of mothers and children.
