The outreach program in eastern Kenya for the "Feeding Hungry Children in Kenya" project of Global Health Partnerships (GHP) has been continuing the treatment of child 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 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 past 3 months (December 2020, January 2021, and February 2021), 305 children were seen and their nutrition status assessed in the GHP outreach clinics. There were 13 visits of young children who 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, 27 families are enrolled in the GHP program of feeding the poorest and receive a monthly food ration. The education support for the school-age children has been suspended because school classes have been canceled due to COVID-19.
