Global Health Partnerships has been continuing the treatment of child malnutrition and hunger, along with improvements in overall child health and well-being, through the outreach clinics to remote villages in Kenya. Poor nutrition and infection can cause serious complications if not treated promptly. The therapeutic feeding regimen used by the "Feeding Hungry Children in Kenya" project is providing food supplements for the children and a monthly supply of nutritious food for the families. Because of the generosity of donors like you, many malnourished children are recovering and healthy.   

In the 3 months (December, January, and February) since our last report, 256 children were seen and their nutrition status assessed in the GHP outreach clinics. During those clinics, 23 young children were treated for malnutrition through the therapeutic feeding program. Immunizations and treatment for worms were also given to the children. In addition to the therapeutic feeding for malnourished children, 24 families are enrolled in the GHP program of feeding the poorest and receive a monthly food ration, plus the support needed for their children to stay in school.

In the clinics in remote villages of rural eastern Kenya children are weighed and measured to assess their nutritional status. The malnourished children are given the therapeutic food “Plumpy’nut” and their families are provided with a monthly food ration. Many of the affected children would die from poor nutrition and infection in the absence of appropriate treatment. Because of the generosity of donors like you, many malnourished children are recovering and healthy.  

GHP sponsors two outreach clinics each month, with 80-90 children seen in each clinic. The nutrition status of these children is assessed and the malnourished children are treated in the therapeutic feeding program. Immunizations and treatment for worms are also given. Village Community Health Workers monitor the growth of these children in order to insure close follow-up. Also, 24 families are enrolled in the GHP program of feeding the poorest and receive a monthly food ration, plus the support needed for their children to stay in school.
