Feeding Hungry Children in remote Kenyan villages

By Dr. Angelo Tomedi | Project Leader

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.

Please send us your comments and suggestions. Tell us if there are aspects of the program for which you would like more detailed information.
