Every child – no matter where they’re born – should have enough food not just to survive, but to thrive. It’s that simple.

But shockingly, more than 2 million children under five are dying from preventable malnutrition every single year.

It takes just six weeks to save a life. We know that ending child hunger is possible – but only if we urgently expand our intensive treatment programme to reach all children who need our help, even in the most remote places.

Will you set up a regular donation that can help bring more babies back from the brink of malnutrition every single month, and let families take their children home to thrive?
