Its 3 days to the 2018 Global malnutrition campaign and we are all amped-up, about the opportunity of being a global voice, for malnourished children in at risk communities!
WHAT IS THE 2018 GLOBAL MALNUTRITION CAMPAIGN?
Feed To Grow is pleased to introduce the organization, and the 2018 Global Malnutrition Campaign, initiated to create global awareness, on the saddening realities of malnutrition in children under age 5 in under-served communities and likewise facilitate the sustainability of our various ongoing malnutrition interventions across communities.
WHY ARE YOU LAUNCHING THIS CAMPAIGN?
The Global Campaign draws needed support for the continuity of our malnutrition intervention, which includes:
- Enrolling selected 182 mothers of our rehabilitated malnourished children into an empowerment program, to sustain the welfare of their children after therapy.
- Conduct a Post therapy monitoring, evaluation and Intervention (MEI), of 300 rehabilitated children, over a period of 3-6 months; to prevent relapse and ensure excellent recovery; enabling them thrive medically, psycho-socially and intellectually amongst their peers.
- A preliminary project extension into Nasarawa Main Town, a newly identified community in Nasarawa LGA, at risk of malnutrition.
WHAT IS YOUR CAMPAIGN TARGET?
The 2018 Global Malnutrition Campaign targets to raise up to 12,415,000 million Naira (35,000 USD), to facilitate the above listed interventions; whilst reaching thousands and millions of people worldwide, informing and imploring them to join us as stakeholders, partners, volunteers and donors against this fight on child and maternal malnutrition.
WHAT IS THE THEME OF THIS YEARS CAMPAIGN?
Our Theme for this year’s 2018 Global malnutrition campaign is SKIP ONE FEED ONE. With malnutrition, being the underlying cause of the death, of 2.6 million children each year – one-third of the global total of children’s deaths, we are urging everyone to do something about it by skipping that daily, monthly or yearly routine, like a family vacation, shopping, cable subscription, Salon treat, movie trip, date night, coffee stops and donating its monetary value to feed one child.
WHERE IS THE CAMPAIGN TAKING PLACE?
The 2018 GLOBAL MALNUTRITION CAMPAIGN is scheduled to hold, all through the month of November, across 15 countries, where we have young professional volunteers. These countries include, but not limited to Nigeria, South Africa, Saint Lucia, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, United States, United Kingdom, Pakistan, India, Jamaica, Ghana, Cyprus, Canada and more.
