The war in Ukraine is worsening the existing global food crisis, putting millions of children at risk of famine. In addition, childhood malnutrition in Malawi has perpetuated through the impacts of recurrent climate shocks. Without access to adequate food and nutrition, children under 5 are at high risk of acute malnutrition, which can result in irreversible setbacks to their development for the rest of their lives.
Regardless of that, our member Reach Out for Life through the Nutrition Programme aims to achieve an outcome of at least 70% of children under 5 years old having access to quality nutrition services by 2030. Reach Out for Life is supporting nutrition programme in Machinga, Group Village Headman Saliwa, where 53 children (minimum/day) receives nutritional porridge.
