Resume:

The proposed intervention aims to rehabilitate vulnerable children under fourteen years old, pregnant and lactating women, and elderly, who are identified as acutely malnourished during screenings. The intervention also aims to reduce the risk of child mortality and through an awareness-raising component, aspires to enhance the basic nutrition knowledge of mothers and other women in communities targeted by the supplementary food distribution activity. Through the intervention, targeted vulnerable people in Borena Zone, Miyo Woreda, will have immediate access to nutritious food and improved knowledge of nutritious food preparation, increasing their nutrition intake and survival rate. Accordingly, provision of Famix (nutritious food) will reduce malnutrition and improve health condition. This intervention will also reinforce the target communities’ knowledge, skills and capability towards prevention of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) against women and girls.
