Help feed a Rwandan family.

SDHSfire

The world is facing an acute food and nutrition crisis. Malnutrition is responsible for the deaths of more than 3.5 million children globally each year, and it is a contributing factor in more than 1/3 of all deaths among children under five. Even when children survive, chronic malnutrition can disrupt mental and physical development, often with permanent consequences. Malnourished children are less likely to attend school, and when they do, they are less likely to succeed. Studies suggest that, in the future, these children are likely to earn less than their peers and will die earlier.

Gardens for Health International (GHI) works to make growing and eating food a part of the clinical treatment of malnutrition. They work with the primary caregivers of children diagnosed with malnutrition, to design and plant home gardens that provide both dietary diversity and crop biodiversity - improving not only the health of families but also the health of the land they farm. They are also providing agricultural training with small animals to teach the families about livestock.

At the same time, they understand that seeds alone cannot resolve the complex and inter-related issues that contribute to the high prevalence of malnutrition. Their health curriculum, which is developed and delivered by members of the communities they work in, is designed to address topics (such as hygiene, family planning and mental health) that make it harder for families to feed their children.

You can help. Just $12.00 helps provides 3 rabbits to a family.


Gardens for Health International works to provide agricultural solutions to chronic childhood malnutrition by:

‐Partnering with Rwandan health centers to integrate agricultural support and health education into the clinical treatment of malnutrition.

‐Advocating for policies and programs that include agriculture in the treatment of malnutrition.

‐Providing technical assistance to regional partners who wish to adapt our model to their own communities.
