Child malnutrition is one of the main cause of death in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Nowadays, 2.1 millions of children are deeply underweight.
Risks start early after birth, because mothers don’t know the importance of breastfeeding. In addition, the general lack of food creates further harms.
After weaning, shortage of vitamin A, zinc and iron weakens children bodies, compromising physical and mental development. An undernourished child risks to die within his first five years of life.
This project aims to improve nourishment of thousands of children and young women, fighting the risk of contracting preventable disease.
Amref works to:
The only supply of food is not the right answer. That the reason why Amref works closely with local communities, because just the with support of everybody it is possible to win the fight against malnutrition.
Novarese Zuccheri supports Amref’s project against malnutrition with the aim to donate 10.000€ by selling “Amref” 1kg cane sugar bag.
