Around the world, children like Mado are starving.
Mado’s mother was doing everything she could, but time — and Mado’s short life — were slipping away. Fortunately, a concerned neighbor alerted the local health center, and trained health workers quickly gave Mado emergency treatment.
They also taught Mado’s mother how to make a nourishing porridge with local ingredients to save Mado’s life.
Hunger is not a new problem in the developing world, but the global coronavirus pandemic is making the challenges of poverty even deeper.
Coronavirus has serious economic impacts that are putting more and more children at risk of severe malnutrition. And, as hospitals fill with coronavirus patients, too many starving children won’t get the help they need. We can’t save them… if we can’t reach them.
