Section title, our mission

Malnutrition is one of the biggest killers of children worldwide, claiming the lives of over two million under-fives each year, and blighting millions more. Access to good nutrition is foundational to development, but malnutrition receives less than 1% of global overseas aid.

Join us in making the case for a renewed commitment from the UK to help solve this urgent problem.

Header, our plan

Implementing this plan would save over 700,000 lives over five years, and deliver more than 300 million interventions to vulnerable women and children around the world.

It would also set the world on track for a more sustainable, equal and climate-resilient future.

  • Emergency therapeutic food
  • Prenatal vitamins
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Vitamin A supplementation
