Treating child malnutrition in Pakistan

Treating child malnutrition in Pakistan

Treating child malnutrition in Pakistan

"Whoever draws nearer (to Allah) by performing any of the (optional) good deeds in (this month) shall receive the same reward as performing an obligatory deed at any other time,” (Ibn Khuzaymah)

£130 – Provide a baby, young child, nursing mother or pregnant woman with treatment for malnutrition.

This Ramadan, when good deeds are rewarded multiple times over, help a baby, child or mother to get treatment for malnutrition.

Decades of climate change-related crises including floods, landslides, drought, cyclones, and epidemics have had a devastating impact on food security and, in particular, the nutrition of the most vulnerable groups. More than 40% of children in Pakistan are stunted and over 50% have anemia. In the most marginalised areas, where we’ll be working, families don’t have easy access to health facilities, and struggle with awareness and affordability of nutritional food.

Working with flood survivors in Sindh province, we’ll be providing children under the age of five, as well as pregnant and nursing women with treatment for malnutrition, food supplements, and awareness sessions on maternal and child nutrition and hygiene.

Fighting malnutrition

With your help this Ramadan, we want to provide:

  • A total of 6,220 people with treatment and training.

  • 11,300 people indirectly supported (family members of those benefiting from the project).

  • 100% of children under five identified as having severe acute malnutrition with treatment at dedicated nutrition centres.

  • 1000 pregnant and nursing mothers with treatment for malnutrition.

  • 2,500 pregnant and nursing mothers with awareness sessions on maternal and infant nutrition as well as training and support on breastfeeding, anaemia, health and hygiene.

  • 220 pregnant women, nursing mothers and acutely malnourished children with food supplements.

  • Separate support groups for mothers and fathers of malnourished children where they can share information and experience.

  • The integration of midwives and women health workers into the project to help it have a lasting impact.

This Ramadan, help us to work to eliminate malnutrition by providing awareness sessions as well as direct treatment of some of the most nutritionally vulnerable groups.
