Fatima's Story

At just nine months old, severe malnutrition left Fatima too weak to stand. Her mum took her to a Save the Children-supported health centre where Fatima got urgent treatment and nutritious food.
Five months on, she's thriving, walking and playing with big sister, Fatun.
 
Yet each year, 3 million children die because they're undernourished.

Rhoda and Lela'S STORY

Rhoda lives in the south-eastern Zomba district of Malawi with her three children. Her four year old daughter, Lela, was underweight for years. Like many in her community, due to poor crop harvests and a lack of education around nutrition, Rhoda couldn't always feed her children enough food.   

But a year after the introduction of a nutrition programme run by Save the Children Malawi, Lela is now a healthy four-year-old. The programme helps pre-schools cultivate seed to make school meals, as well as improving agriculture, cooking and hygiene in the home.

It’s changed everything for Rhoda and her family. Lela now attends pre-school – where she gets a mid-morning meal of porridge – and the formerly quiet child has become sociable, curious and engaged in her learning.

Help support more children like Lela get access to nutritious food.
