Plumpy'Nut is a peanut based, therapeutic food that treats severe and acute malnutrition within just 6 to 8 weeks. These are used as an emergency treatment for children under 6 months old. It supports rapid weight gain derived from broad nutrient intake which can alleviate a starving child from impending illness or death. Since 2017, HHA have partnered with Edesia, a non-profit, social enterprise making life-saving foods, including Plumpy’Nut. With thanks to Edesia and our partnership, we have together provided almost 6,000 cartons of Plumpy'Nut to over 5,600 children suffering from acute malnutrition across the refugee settlements in Uganda. This is a big opportunity for one or two donors to cover 50% or 100% of the shipping costs to enable 1,700+ children to receive these life-saving sachets.
