stop children dying of hunger

We fund projects which diagnose and treat children whose lives are in immediate danger because of severe hunger. The most serious form of hunger is called acute malnutrition, which causes millions of preventable child deaths each year. More than 70% of children treated are cured, but only 1 in 5 children affected are able to access the treatment they need. It does not have to be this way.

our first research project with Action Against Hunger in Mali proved children can safely access treatment in their communities rather than at health centres

As a result, the government of Mali changed its national treatment policy, and the World Health Organisation made Community Health Workers a globally recommended practice.

now we’re funding more cutting edge research projects with the same potential to stop children dying

Co-ordinated global action is the most effective way to do this. We were a member of the No Wasted Lives Coalition and work with CORTASAM (Council for Research & Technical Advice on Acute Malnutrition) to advise us on the best projects to fund.
