In the world’s hungriest country, you could restock a clinic and save a child’s life.

Having a child with a serious health condition is terrifying. Now imagine arriving at the hospital to find out they can't help, simply because they've run out of medicine or lack vital equipment.

For parents living in the Central African Republic, this is the reality they face. Augustine had walked several hours, only to find that her local clinic, the Pama Clinic, had run out of the life-saving therapeutic food that her severely malnourished son, Passi, needed.

Give to our Free From Hunger appeal and help to restock clinics with emergency food, medicine and equipment to help save the lives of children like Passi. You could help a child grow up strong and healthy, so they can break free from hunger.

We are receiving high-energy peanut-based food. Last Friday, I received 15 sachets. I've seen an improvement in her health.

Our supporters have already helped us make a massive impact

  • We've been able to supply 13 clinics with emergency food, medicine and equipment.
  • Training and coaching for 173 healthcare staff members and 128 outreach staff members, like community health volunteers.
  • Helped organise 13 mobile clinics to bring essential healthcare to children and families living in remote communities.

 

However, still over a third of health clinics in the area we work in are unsupported; some are virtually empty buildings. We need your help to support these clinics so that we can reach even more children in the Central African Republic.

Your gift could not only help restock clinics but also support staff members to ensure children get the treatment and care they need to grow up strong and healthy, so they can break free from hunger.
