The Impact of the War in Ukraine on Food Prices in

The Nutrition and Peer Support program for HIV+ patients was created to not only form a safe and welcoming environment for those afflicted by HIV, but also release the financial burden of widowed or single parents of having to cook for their children. As the war in Ukraine continues, food prices have soared, making it difficult for single mothers to support their families. 

The war in Ukraine has greatly affected food prices and chain supply across the globe. The African country of Mali has especially felt these aftershocks, as the price of food and other needs has skyrocketed, making it unaffordable for many.

According to the International Food Policy Research Group, household consumption has fallen across the board for all Malian households. This is because due to the inflation, there have been rising prices, as well as falling incomes. The research group describes the household inflation as a ‘food shock’, which has affected households across the country.

Programs such as the ongoing Nutrition and Peer Support group for HIV+ patients are greatly beneficial during this time due to the nature of the local economy, and rising prices of food. Having access to these welcoming meals lessens the financial burden for single parents that are supporting large households. By donating only $10, you would be giving an HIV+ patient their weekly meal within the program. For only $30, you would be giving a weekly meal to a mother and three children. There have been many individuals in the local Malian community that have been afflicted by both HIV+ and the food shock. Your donations are greatly appreciated at this time.
