Food Crisis in Zambia
Nutritional care for children aged two to five years against hunger and malnutrition
The hunger crisis in Zambia has reached a new high. Due to the erratic climate, the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and political factors, food shortages are expected to continue to grow.” The situation has gotten so bad that poor people have started to feed on baked clay. This is especially devastating for young children, as daily consumption of meat, legumes, eggs, and salt-free nuts as sources of protein, iron, and zinc, strengthens the child’s immune system against a variety of infectious diseases. Children who do not eat a healthy breakfast daily are at risk for malnutrition due to a lack of energy and nutrients.
Hope Donors have responded to this crisis and have sent food and supplement packages for malnourished children. For a more detailed update on our activities, please follow our social media.
