Summary

Kitovu Hospital admits severely malnourished children for nutrition rehabilitation and treatment from kwashiorkor and marasmus. These come from very poor peasant families who are severely affected by hunger because of increasing crop failure due to increasing drought. Kitovu is longing to continue providing food and treatment to severely malnourished children and training of their mothers and next-of-kin in appropriate feeding to save the children from severe malnutrition hunger and death.

Challenge

Severe Malnutrition is affecting children from very poor peasant families in Masaka and the neighboring districts. This is worsened by increasing crop failure due to long droughts as a result of environment degradation. Children suffer from kwashiorkor (protein deficiency) and marasmus which affect their cognitive ability for a life time. Through this project Kitovu will provide food and treatment to them and save their lives.

Solution

The project will involve buying food and drugs for 300 severely malnourished children admitted at Kitovu Hospital in a year. It will also involve training their mothers and next-of-kin in appropriate feeding practices to save the children from severe malnutrition.

Long-Term Impact

With the implementation of this project, 300 children will be saved from severe malnutrition. Mothers and next-of-kin will be trained in in appropriate feeding so that children are saved from severe malnutrition because of the skill of the mother or the next-of-kin in proper feeding practices.
