With a staggering one in three under-5-year-olds being stunted in Sierra Leone and nearly 200,000 children suffering from malnutrition annually, the importance of the Plumpy Nut project cannot be overstated. It provides a lifeline for these children and their families.
The Plumpy Nut project is not just about fundraising but also about self-sustainability. By producing high-calorie, protein-rich supplements from readily available local produce, the project aims to ensure that malnourished children on the ward don't miss out on their vital meals. This self-reliance is a game-changer, ensuring that vital supplies are always available and uninterrupted.
