According to various studies, malnutrition in children is common globally and results in both short and long term irreversible negative health outcomes including stunted growth which may also be linked to cognitive development deficits, underweight and wasting. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that malnutrition accounts for 54 percent of child mortality worldwide, about 1 million children. Another estimate also by WHO states that childhood underweight is the cause for about 35% of all deaths of children under the age of five years worldwide. The main causes are unsafe water, inadequate sanitation or insufficient hygiene, factors related to society and poverty, diseases, maternal factors, gender issues and – overall – poverty. With this in mind, Hope Warrior Children’s Charity is striving to provide meals to learners at least three times a week in order to supplement their diet.
A menu schedule is used to implement this program, which includes all the healthy foods needed to assist and stimulate growth. Hope Warriors Children’s Charity is always looking for partner organizations to assist in executing this important and life-changing program.
Any help from donors and sponsors in this regard will be greatly appreciated and will be put to proper use. It will go a long way to helping children rise up from poverty and meet life’s challenges head-on. Help Hope Warriors Children’s Charity to accomplish its purpose!
