Fighting hunger of Kenyan children and families

Child hunger and malnutrition is a common problem in the poverty-stricken region of eastern Kenya where GHP has established a therapeutic feeding program. Many of these children would die from poor nutrition and infection if treatment is not started. The first step is to identify the children who need treatment in the isolated villages. GHP has trained a network of volunteer village Community Health Workers (CHWs) who have been weighing and measuring the children and arranging treatment. CHWs also monitor child growth to assess the response to the treatment program. The therapeutic feeding regimen was initiated and the "Feeding Hungry Children in Kenya" project provided the children and their families with a monthly supply of nutritious food. Because of the generosity of donors like you, many children are now thriving and healthy.          

Twenty-four 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.Many of the hungry malnourished children in the “Feeding Hungry Children in Kenya” project have been found in the outreach clinics that provide vital services for young children in remote villages. In the 3 months since our last report (October, November, and December), 266 children were seen in the GHP outreach clinics. 10 of these young children were treated for malnutrition through the therapeutic feeding program. Immunizations and treatment for worms were also given to the children.

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