Challenge

The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the poorest countries in the world, where the high rate of child and maternal mortality is caused mainly by food scarcity, wrong food habits, bad hygienic and sanitary conditions, which increase the spread of infective diseases. Moreover, high female illiteracy rates are strongly related to the risk of child malnutrition: mother's education can indeed improve pre and postnatal care.

Solution

The aim of the project is to eradicate malnutrition from the areas of Mabaya and Sambwa by improving the provision and quality of nutritional and health care services and by raising the awareness of the importance of a correct nutrition and hygiene practices in the community.

Long-Term Impact

The project wants to reduce by 30% child mortality in the areas of Mabaya and Sambwa in three years and to improve the health of children, their mothers and of the whole community through better assistance services and meeting aimed to increase awareness of good health practices.
