Malnutrition is a chronic crisis in Niger
. In partnership with the Croix-Rouge of Niger, the Croix-Rouge
of France has undertaken to support the Zinder hospital's paediatric unit
. Its mission: to develop an integrated treatment approach for acute malnutrition in children under 5. The Croix-Rouge of France aims to move beyond a system of emergency intervention to anchor medical treatment for malnutrition in the healthcare system itself.
Give now to support the Croix-Rouge in the Zinder district:
- Improve free medical, nutritional and psychosocial treatment for children under the age of 5
within the district's existing health system and hospital.
- Reinforce the treatment of acute malnutrition in communities
by raising awareness and enlisting the involvement of locals.
- Empower local municipalities and health authorities
to take on increasing responsibility in the fight against malnutrition and the development of food security.
- Improve access to water
and medical equipment at Health Clinics.
