Malnutrition remains high in Malawi and accounts for half of all child deaths in Malawi. Poverty hits the children hardest and threatens their basic right to survival, health and nutrition. In response to this, The Malawi United Methodist Church (MUMC) and The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection has embarked on a journey to feed the needy children with rice and soya,  a nutritious pack called “Meals of Hope”.

Malawi experiences moderate to severe food crises and the Meals of Hope aims to reach more than 5,000 underfive children in the first year of its implementation, providing them with one meal per day in order to prevent malnutrition-related child deaths, ensure health growth and brain development.

 

 

As the journey continues!!!
