What we’re doing
In 2017 we focused on ensuring treatment for children with severe acute malnutrition in close partnership with the relevant local health departments. We completed the multi-year European Union funded programme Women and Infant/Child Improved Nutrition in Sindh, which included extensive nutrition coverage across Dadu district through outpatient therapeutic programme sites.
To address the causes of hunger we have focused on preventing disease such as worms and diarrhoea, food security interventions and promoting safe hygiene and sanitation practices. This has included direct activities to encourage behaviour change targeting women as mother, children and wider community members. We have supported agriculture activities such as vaccination campaigns for livestock, established kitchen gardens to promote diverse household consumption, provided food vouchers and support for social safety net cash injection to improve livelihoods security.
