Malnutrition

In Sub-Saharan Africa 50% of all childhood deaths are directly linked to malnutrition with children stuck in a vicious cycle of disease and malnourishment. In southern Mali, we worked closely with our client, Hummingbird Resources, to deliver a comprehensive community intervention to tackle an epidemic of malnutrition.

Working with local healthcare workers we assessed over 1,100 children in the villages surrounding the project, identifying and treating those individuals suffering from acute malnutrition. Following the initial stage of the project we met extensively with families educating them on simple interventions to help ensure that malnutrition is eradicated in the local community over the lifetime of our client’s project.
