Healthy Kids: when good nutrition transforms lives

Read some of our amazing stories showing how children’s lives have been transformed in Mali.

Today, 16 million children worldwide suffer from life-threatening undernutrition. Shockingly, only 1 in ten children currently get the treatment they so desperately need to regain their health, often simply because health care is too far away. The good news is that the innocent foundation and Action Against Hunger are working to change this. Together, we are revolutionising the way malnourished children are diagnosed and treated, paving the way for health workers to reach all malnourished children, no matter where they live.

By empowering community health workers to diagnose and treat children at home, rather than expecting their parents to walk up to 40km to the nearest clinic every week for treatment, we are tackling undernutrition head on.

This month, meet some of the wonderful people from Kourounan in Mali, and find out how access to healthcare has transformed their lives. Watch for more stories soon.
