Acute Malnutrition in Infants | Yemen
Update Feb 1, 2024: Distribution of high-energy nutrition and medication to 60 malnourished infants is in progress in Hodeida, Yemen. The first picture demonstrates the impact of this essential aid with a visible improvement in the infant’s health. This program will continue until the end of June 2024. If additional funds are collected, CAI will expand the scope of this aid.
Abdulkarim Lalgee, CAI representative for Yemen, has just returned from an audit trip where CAI supports and funds the education and welfare of 150 orphans. CAI also aids in food and infant milk distribution to remote areas in Yemen. Although the daily violence has abated, malnutrition in infants is prevalent.
These infants urgently need high-energy nutrition and medication for at least six months to adequately grow and survive. Their parents are unable to afford the cost. CAI wants to help 60 malnourished infants insha’Allah. Please consider participating.
