You could see the fear in her eyes as she placed her dying baby boy into the nurse’s arms.
Unable to eat, his eyes sunken in his skull, Teer Majak Mun was near death from starvation. His skin yellowed, and he had begun suffering from convulsions. There wasn’t a moment to spare. Thankfully, your previous support helped to build a nutrition stabilization center in South Sudan.
Otherwise, Teer’s desperate mother would be placing her baby into a grave.
Help starving children today
Your gift today to our 2021 Hunger Challenge can save these children’s lives.
Your love will provide a nourishing paste, similar to peanut butter, that helps treat severe malnutrition in young children. You’ll also provide antibiotics and deworming medications so their little bodies can fight infections. For children who are not as sick as Teer but are still at great risk, your love can give them highly fortified food supplements to prevent severe malnutrition and even death.
