Our program works to reduce infant malnutrition and lower the mortality rate in children across Haiti by providing access to medical care for treatable illnesses.
The program most often treats infants and children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, kwashiorkor, anemia, dehydration, and infectious diseases.
We follow the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for treating malnutrition in Haiti. Our program includes the use of strong IV antibiotics, nutrient dense formula, and Medika Mamba ®, a locally-made ready-to-use therapeutic food by Meds & Foods for Kids. This treatment method provides each child with proper vitamins and nutrients to help them heal and grow stronger.
The goal of our Malnutrition Program is to provide access to quality medical care, proper treatment, and education to Haitian communities to help prevent future cases of malnutrition. Our prayer is that by serving those currently suffering, we would successfully educate families and communities and ultimately lower the number of children suffering from malnutrition in Haiti.
