Juliana, 10 months, South Sudan, World Vision 2018

Malnutrition treatment

This gift will transform the life of a severely ill, acutely-malnourished child. This full recovery package for a severely malnourished child includes:

  • awareness raising for a whole community,
  • access to stabilisation centres where children can be nursed back to health,
  • and treatment costs (therapeutic food and medicines, and monitoring weight and health).

By giving this gift you are restoring a young child to health and saving their life.

In March this year, baby Juliana’s life was in danger. She was severely malnourished and her mother Grace was worried she would die. A World Vision volunteer measured Juliana, recognised the signs of malnutrition and urged Grace to take her to a nutrition centre.

Through therapeutic food and treatment, Juliana bounced back quickly. Grace was taught how to administer therapeutic food at home, and returned to the centre each week to get Juliana weighed and measured, learn about nutrition and health, and collect more nutritious food. Within two months, Juliana gained weight, started crawling and playing, and was no longer malnourished. Now, she’s already standing on her own.

“I’m very happy to see how Juliana is doing now. She’s more healthy than the other children were at her age. I’m hoping she’ll continue to be healthy in the future.”, says Grace.
