The Kenyan nurse and GHP-trained Community Health Workers continue to conduct outreach clinics to the most remote villages to who check the nutrition status of the children. Many of the affected children would die from poor nutrition and infection if treatment is not started. 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 since our last report (October, November, December), 263 children were seen and their nutrition status assessed in the GHP outreach clinics. 22 of these young children were treated for malnutrition through the therapeutic feeding program (in the previous 3-month period there were only 10). 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.
