How your Sadaqah could help

Ahmed, one, from Somalia was born into a food crisis. He's already had to battle life-threatening malnutrition.

Food prices in the local market have gone up and the family has had to cut down on meals.

“We have two meals a day – breakfast and lunch. We don’t have dinner because we don’t have enough food. We used to buy milk for the children but now we have stopped that as well.” - Ahmeds mum, Nala*.

They visted one of our stabilisation centres for malnourished children in Puntland, Somalia. After a few days on a special milk formula followed by an 6–8 week course of high-nutrient peanut paste Ahmed’s energy levels had started to pick up dramatically.

A simple but amazingly effective treatment for severe acute malnutrition.
