Malnalife Malnutrition Project (Ongoing)
As outlined in the National Policy on Food and Nutrition and National Strategic Plan of Action for Nutrition, Nigeria has set the following targets between 2014 and 2019: reduce the number of under-5 children who are stunted by 20 percent; reduce low birth weight by 15 percent; ensure no increase in childhood overweight; reduce and maintain childhood wasting to less than 10 percent; reduce anaemia in women of reproductive age by 50 percent; and increase exclusive breastfeeding rates in the first 6 months to at least 50 percent. However, childhood and mother malnutrition are still on the rise in the country.
As such, the aforementioned organization have come up with an ingenious project with the theme; Malnalife Project, with an aim of abridging malnutrition in marginalized communities in Nigeria.
– To Distribute Fortified Complementary Foods to malnourished children between age 6 months to 5 years for 3 months.
– Train and Equip mothers and young women on range of topics related to malnutrition and breastfeeding.
– Connect malnourished children to dietitians for proper care and Health check-ups for mothers and children.
– Sensitize fathers on the essence of supporting their wives in breastfeeding and childcare.
