With donor support, World Concern is reaching the hardest hit villages and providing starving children with a 3 month supply of nutritional packets. Filled with a peanut-butter like paste, each packet gives a malnourished child the nutrition and vitamins they need to survive.
Somalia is being ravaged by a long-lasting and severe drought. A lack of rain has caused crops to wither and farming animals to die. Weak and vulnerable, children are not getting the nutrition they need to stay alive. Sick and hungry, children are beyond the need of a meal. They need emergency nutrition.
Nutripackets provide a nutritional boost to a malnourished child. Taken daily for 3 months, these packets restore a child's battered immune system, strengthening them and giving them every chance of making a full recovery. Filled with a peanut-like paste, the packets contain all the daily nutrients and vitamins a starving child needs. Nutripackets are the most practical and affordable solution to a massive food crisis in Somalia.
With full bellies, children are not only healthier and happier, but they are also able to learn faster and enjoy life to the fullest. Even in the midst of a drought, a donor can ensure a child is nourished and fed, removing a huge worry for parents who are trying to rebuild their lives, plant crops, and raise healthy animals. This of course has a ripple effect on the community as families become healthier and are at less risk of losing their children to hunger.
