Amabile Family Food Drive Powered By The Wishwall Foundation and Simonetta Lein

Business, Politics, US, World

Nigeria has one of the highest burdens of childhood malnutrition, thus a large number of children are at risk of its far-reaching long-term consequences. 

The Executive Secretary of the State Primary Healthcare Board Plateau State, Dr Livinus Miapkwap said it is already alarming that children between six (6) to 59 weeks are experiencing stunting and if the State is not careful, the situation may get to what is obtained in the North East region of the country where children are suffering from acute malnutrition. (A report from Vanguard Newspaper,2020).

 Malnutrition is multi-faceted; it is tied to issues such as women’s education/empowerment, access to quality reproductive healthcare services, food security and agriculture, access to clean water and sanitation. As a result, it needs to be tackled with different, quality, diverse and affordable interventions. Interventions need to tackle the root causes of malnutrition which often requires looking into the home the children come from and the general family circumstances. Otherwise, children who have been treated for severe acute malnutrition, may relapse.

Through the Amabile Family Food Drive, 15 families were given food supplies that will sustain them for a month plus. The food drive was flagged off by Bukola Olalere, the Council President of World Merit Nigeria on behalf of the Wishwall Foundation.

Families that benefited from the Amabile Family Food Drive were selected using one criterion: The children were malnourished. The Simonetta Lein Women Empowerment Fund and Amabile Family Food Drive is the Wishwall Foundation strategy of combating malnutrition in Nigeria, Jos East, Plateau State. 

Beneficiaries of the Food drive were over joyed to have received the food packs because the state recently had some insecurity challenge rendering some families homeless. Thank you Ms Simonetta Lein for your show of Love toward Women and their families.
