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. Whilst this feels daunting, the good news is that more than 70% of children treated are cured. Right now, only 1 in 5 children can get this treatment – but it doesn’t need to be this way.

our first research project with Action Against Hunger in Mali proved this, by making it easier for parents to access care in their communities

As a result, the government of Mali changed its national treatment policy.

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 belong to the No Wasted Lives coalition which works to help more kids survive severe acute malnutrition, doubling treatment rates by 2020. We also work closely with CORTASAM (Council Of Research & Technical Advice On Acute Malnutrition) to advise us on the best projects to fund.
