WHAT ARE WE DOING
In 2018, we provided nutrition and health services to more than 178,00 people, including treating more than 46,000 children under five. We also empowered mothers to screen their children, improve care and feeding practices for infants, and prevent malnutrition.
Our programmes also helped people in the following ways:
- Our cash-for-assets programme provided assistance to more than 5,000 families
- We improved access to water and sanitation for 110,854 people and rehabilitated 115 waterpoints
- We deployed our emergency teams to hard-to-reach areas and screened 46,670 people and treated 3,250 acutely malnourished children
- We conducted ten surveys to measure malnutrition
The preliminary results of our research into malnutrition levels provided practical evidence of better ways to fight undernutrition.
In partnership with the World Food Programme, we piloted a digital system to manage malnutrition treatment and community outreach. We conducted gender analyses and safety audits to account for the impact of gender-based violence on nutrition, and to improve service delivery.
