Millions of children across the world are suffering from malnutrition. For them, Christmas will be just another day spent fighting to survive.
Your help can save a child from hunger this Christmas.
Thank you for giving what you can.
£20 today will feed a malnourished child for two months
Children in southern and eastern Africa are some of the most vulnerable in the world. Across South Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Zimbabwe, millions of children are at risk of starvation. Consecutive years of drought are causing crops to fail and cattle to die, and forcing exhausted, hungry families to flee their homes.
When Nyane (pictured above) was brought by his mum to a World Vision clinic, he was too weak to stand. He was only half the weight of a typical two-year-old in the UK. Millions of children like him need our urgent help.
If left untreated, malnutrition will kill vulnerable children like Nyane, or cause severe complications and affect their development. Currently, across the world, only one malnourished child in every five gets the treatment they need to survive.
Please help prevent malnutrition in vulnerable children this Christmas. Your gift today will mean that children will get a steady supply of emergency food and treatment that could save their life.
Thanks to the support of people like you, 89% of the severely malnourished children we’ve treated since 2014 have fully recovered. With your help, we can treat, heal and prevent more cases of child malnutrition.
Today, you can help us to re-write the futures of children like Nyane. Thank you.
