Challenge

Much of Darfur suffers from malnutrition due to inadequate food supply and nutritional content. Health issues stemming from this situation are causing serious problems for expectant mothers. Youth mortality is very high. Our health/nutrition program is working to eradicate both problems among young children and mothers.

Solution

Relief International is working to support the nutritional status of malnourished children (5-year-olds) as well as women who are pregnant or lactating. RI is also providing health services to nearly 100,000 women and children in IDP camps.

Long-Term Impact

Through permanent clinics, regular medical treatment, reproductive health support, nutritional supplements and health training of community health workers and birth attendants, RI is improving the health condition of mothers and children.
