For children who are at risk of protein-energy malnutrition, we are setting up nutrition camps, which are community-based nutrition programs. Two strategies are used in the intervention: one promotes local knowledge and child care customs, and the other instructs mothers in healthy cooking practices and recipes for undernourished kids. Children between the ages of 0 and 6 who are undernourished are screened, identified, and forwarded to nutrition camps based on their precise anthropometric measurements of height, weight, and MUAC.

With this program,
- Due to the local relevance and affordability of this program in rehabilitating malnourished children, it has been very successful. The majority of kids with severe acute malnutrition, also known as SAM (without infection), and moderate acute malnutrition (MAM), can be treated in their neighborhoods without being admitted to a hospital or therapeutic feeding center, according to the available evidence. The camp’s goals include rehabilitating malnourished children, maintaining that rehabilitation, and preventing further malnutrition in the neighborhood.
- By utilizing creative food solutions, integrating communities, fostering collaborations, and utilizing technology, we are delivering high impact, sustainable, and scalable health and nutrition projects. We are also working to catalyze the SDG goal of Zero Hunger.
It only takes two doses of vitamin A per year to combat the devastating effects of vitamin A deficiency. These supplements strengthen immune systems, helping to fight off life-threatening illnesses for children in developing countries who lack access to foods with vitamin A.
Parasitic worms in children can lead to malnutrition. Deworming children with albendazole allows them to better absorb nutrients, combating malnutrition and symptoms like illness and stunted development. We pair vitamin A and deworming tablets for a greater impact.
Our prenatal multivitamins deliver essential nutrients so more babies can survive and thrive. Providing supplemental nutrition in the form of a daily prenatal multivitamin is an excellent way to meet the expanded need. Prenatals help support healthy pregnancies, prevent anemia, promote fetal growth, and ensure that babies are born at a healthy birth weight. They are crucial to the health and survival of the growing baby and to the health and well-being of the mothers.
