Improving the quality of life of vulnerable children and families through nutrition education in Bichi and Kumbotso LGA of Kano State

The problem of malnutrition is a priority need in Bichi and Kumbotso local government areas of Kano state because infant mortality rate is on the increase as a result of malnutrition. World Health Organization, 2010 estimated that in Nigeria 41% of children under-five are stunted, 27% are underweight and only 17% were exclusively breastfed. These rates vary across regions in the country with the North West recording the highest rates (51.4% of children under five are stunted - chronically malnourished). Kano has the 6th highest burden of acute malnutrition among children 6-59 months in Nigeria, Prevalence of Acute Malnutrition _ WHZ WHO (NNHS/SMART 2015). KAF Care Foundation works to combat the effects of malnutrition across all ages but with particular attention to under 5s – a category most vulnerable disease and death in the event of malnutrition. In addition to interventions which improve key household practices and food utilization for better nutritional outcomes in household, KAF Care Foundation partners with Vitamin Angels to bring vitamin A supplementation for under 5s to their doorstep through the closest health facility. KAF Care Foundation seeks for funds to bring aid and knowledge to 1,600 VC and 400 caregivers within 24 months in such communities, conduct capacity building and mentorship to households and community structures, to save lives which could (and will) be needlessly lost if nothing is done. The sum of –N-9,990,000 ($27,516.13) has been estimated for this project. Interventions are presently being implemented but a lot more needs to be done. And more resources and funds are needed.
