Kenyan Children Improving with the Help of GHP Sponsors

Over 100 children have been successfully treated for malnutrition due to the generosity of the supporters of this project. Children like Naomi (photo) who came close to dying from severe malnutrition have recovered completely thanks to a $45 monthly donation for the food supplements. In Kenya about 1 in 10 children die before reaching 5 years of age, and more than half of those childhood deaths are from malnutrition. Children suffering from malnutrition sometimes die from complications, even after treatment has started. There have been no deaths thus far in our treatment group of young children, and we hope to continue this successful program with close monitoring of child growth and a continuous supply of the special food supplements until recovery of each child is assured.

Please let us know how we may better present our story so that we can increase our base of support and better meet the needs of the children of Kisesini.
