Feed the children geared to nourishing under five children 

Realising the high level of malnutrition and waterborne diseases affecting under-five children and people that live in flood-prone areas, an international Non Governmental Organization (NGO), Feed The Children, has embarked on a five-year project that is to improve the health status of over 43,800 children in 12 districts across the country.

Dubbed Tuwalele 2, the project is being supported by the United States Agency For International Development (USAID) to a tune of a $38,000,000.
Speaking in an interview, Feed the Children Zone manager for the north Bright Mhango, said in regard to water sanitation, the NGO will drill boreholes in areas that do not have or have a few boreholes.
Mhango said this would help communities gain access to clean and portable water.
“Feed the Children is very passionate about under-five children and their health, hence this project. It is vital that children grow up fit and healthy,” Mhango said.
He further articulated that his organization will support 12,000 children in health and nutrition, in 212 community-based childcare centres. He said his organization will donate food supplements.
Karonga District Hospital hailed Feed the Children for the provision of 72,000 sachets of water guard, valued over K500,000.
The water guard helped the Hospital to contain the cholera outbreak which claimed 13 lives in the 2015 to 2016 rainy season in the district.
According to Louis Tokula, the district Environmental Health Officer, the Hospital also appreciates the financial assistance that the organization is playing in controlling disease.
