The last couple of years have been challenging for the world; however, those most affected are the youngest and most vulnerable. The rapid growth of severe malnutrition in lesser developed countries has surpassed previous projections. If not addressed quickly, malnutrition is often deadly and directly impacts the cognitive and physical development of its victims.
In Haiti alone over 80,000 children have been diagnosed with severe malnutrition in 2021. Many could face death without immediate assistance. This holiday season HRI has committed to boosting our efforts to save thousands of children's lives.
HRI is currently assisting over 700 children in Haiti and Guatemala, but with over 80,000 children in Haiti alone struggling to survive, we will need everyone to help in this extraordinary effort!
As 2021 nears its end, please consider how you would like to lend a hand up to a child or children living with the pain of hunger and malnutrition!
