200 million children suffer the effects of malnutrition.
Despite global improvements, malnutrition in the developing world remains high – and in some places, including southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, poor nutrition is on the rise.
Malnutrition affects every stage life and has severe consequences that can impact generations. Malnourished mothers are more likely to die in childbirth and have low birth weight babies. Children born to malnourished mother are at increased risk of disease and death. Chronically malnourished children face lifelong consequences in reduced mental capacity, lower retention in school and reduced lifetime earnings.
We try to give temporary shelter, food and education to the poor and needy children. Right now we are giving shelter to nine such children. Some are orphans, some have single parents and others are totally poor.
