Global Health Partnerships (GHP) has continued the outreach program in eastern Kenya for the "Feeding Hungry Children in Kenya" project in order to identify and provide treatment for children suffering from malnutrition and hunger. The children in need of help are identified in the outreach clinics in remote rural villages. 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 provides nutritious food supplements (“Plumpy’nut”) 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. Approximately 70 children are seen every month in the clinics and those found to have acute malnutrition (5 or 6 each month) are enrolled in the therapeutic feeding project. Follow-up nutrition assessment is conducted by trained community health workers to insure recovery from malnutrition.
In addition to the therapeutic feeding for malnourished children, 27 families are enrolled in the GHP program of feeding the poorest and receive a monthly food ration. School-age children also receive support (payment of school fees and uniforms) that allows them to continue their education.
