World Vision provides emergency food to make sure children and families get essential nutrients during a time of crisis. We also help families strengthen and improve their ability to produce or purchase their own food. This helps families to be better equipped to handle future food challenges.
Families in rural areas often grow or raise their own food. They rely on crops and animals that grow locally as well as traditional recipes that may not equal balanced, nutritious meals.
We focus on providing nutrition for pregnant and lactating mothers, along with mothers with children under 5, who are most vulnerable to the long-term impact of malnutrition.
