FAROF addressing Malnutrition in Nigeria

 

  • We work to address immediate needs to avoid a deterioration of the situation and prevent mortality in young children by supporting early detection and care for children suffering from severe acute malnutrition and providing ready-to-use therapeutic food for their treatment.
  • We also provide access to water, sanitation and hygiene in health facilities and communities; and educate families on how to prepare and provide nutritious food to their children.
  • we create the conditions for people to become self-reliant again, by promoting the availability, access and use of local food resources; improving health and other social services; promoting optimal infant and young child feeding practices so that households, communities and national systems are better prepared to prevent and deal with similar shocks in the future.
  • FAROF continue to strengthen partnership with both public and private partners to increase national commitments in nutrition funding, as part of a quick response system to the treatment of  severe acute malnutrition at both local, state and national level
