Fighting Malnutrition

In many countries throughout Africa, malnutrition is a major problem; in addition to effects on health, it can cause children to miss school due to lack of strength and inability to concentrate, putting them at a severe disadvantage. For children with HIV/AIDS, malnutrition can be a death sentence, leaving them open to opportunistic infections, in addition to effects on livelihood and education.
