Fighting child malnutrition in Kenya

cabecera_uvinum_aztivate

Uvinum is one of the multiple companies who collaborates with us with a strongest commitment against child malnutrition. Some days ago, euro to euro, all their customers collected the total amount necessary to ensure the distribution of a daily meal to 60 children in Madagascar trough the collaboration with Yamuna.

aztivateNow, they have just started a new challenge. In collaboration with Aztivate, an NGO who works for cooperation and development in Africa, the customers of Uvinum will make that 340 children from Turkana (Kenya) receive Vitamin A, antiparasitic and multivitamin annual treatment.

As you may know, Kenya is experiencing one of the worst crises since 2011 due to the lack of rain that triggers serious health problems. Children and pregnant women urgently need medical and food assistance. In particular, the population of Turkana, a region located in northern Kenya, has levels of malnutrition of the 30% and the forecast is that the situation will worsen due to the lack of rainfall. Aztivate has been working in the region for two years, fighting child malnutrition. Uvinum community will have the opportunity to do the same now.

One in three people suffer from some form of malnutrition in the world

International World Food Day

On 16 October 1945, 42 countries met in Quebec to create the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Since that day, every year the organization celebrates the World Food Day to raise awareness about hunger in the world and remember the need to ensure food security for all.

We don’t want to miss the opportunity to show our commitment to this fight, which affects 2,500 million people worldwide, and is that 1 in 3 people suffer from one form of malnutrition, ranging from the hunger to obesity.

But this doesn’t end here, 793 million suffer chronic hunger and don’t have enough food. These frightening figures contrast with the nearly 1.900 million people who are overweight; the other side of the coin which causes 3.2 million deaths each year.

From Worldcoo we try to encourage all projects that seek to end this problem that contributes to the premature death of mothers, children, poor physical development and brain and increasing chronic diseases.

One of them is “Overcoming malnutrition in Ethiopia,” sponsored by UNHCR / ACNUR and that we launched together with PromoFarma.  Thanks to the donations that users are doing, the NGO will ensure the nutritional well-being of 11,323 children under 5 years as refugees in this country, which hosts more displaced persons in Africa.You can remember it HERE.

Today, we encourage you also help spread the cause and raise awareness.
