Feeding an orphaned baby costs more than most Malawian families earn. And sadly many die from malnutrition or grow up to be severely stunted. We give orphaned babies the nutrition, care and medicines they need to become healthy enough to return home.

“Over 50% of under-fives in Malawi suffer from stunted growth. Children who are undernourished between conception and age two are at high risk for impaired cognitive development, which adversely affects the country’s productivity and growth”

Stuck for ideas? Why not have a look at some of our sample menus below! You can cook whichever recipe you would like during the campaign, although researching Malawian recipes can also be a fun way to try something new. Bonus points for creativity!
