Sharon is one of the little ones you have helped recently. At 12 months she weighed just 14 lbs. She was screened for severe malnutrition, having scattered clumps of hair, dry skin and skin rashes. She was admitted to the Macheo Malnourished Children’s Program where she was fed on fortified porridge in the morning, nutritious lunch, milk and a fruit. Weeks after Sharon was admitted into the program she started showing signs of improvements, with the help of caregivers and the nutrition team.
April 9-13 we are raising funds for children like Sharon through the GlobalGiving ‘Little by Little’ campaign. Donate $50 and GlobalGiving will add $25, up to a total of $50,000 across their eligible projects. Be the first to garner these funds early in the week for Macheo’s Malnourished Children’s Program in the Kiandutu slum of Thika Kenya.
Thank you in advance for caring about feeding these little children.
