World Vision nutritionist, June, screening babies, Kenya, World Vision 2017

Measuring equipment

Measuring equipment, consisting of:

  • weighing scales,
  • height boards
  • and MUAC tapes (to check children’s arm circumference), allow health workers to recognise the signs of malnutrition.

The nutritionists then administer Plumpy’Nut, a peanut-based supplement for malnourished children, as well as Corn Soya Blend for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.

The gift of medical measuring equipment and malnutrition treatment will literally save lives every single day. And although our nutritionists continue to support the family for two months, almost all children are better within three weeks.
