Of these, 22 were severely malnourished and were referred for treatment. Through support from WFP 36,409 children under five and 9,650 mothers/caregivers received supplemental feeding packs.

 

Children are protected from infectious diseases: 62,400 Long-lasting Treated Nets were donated. Two million doses of Albendazole (deworming drugs) were donated to the Ministry of Health and Sanitation.

 

Children are educated for life

Violence, in all its forms, is the biggest issue affecting children today. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
