Eritrea Health and nutrition - Child protection

About 80% of the population of Eritrea lives in rural villages, and is mostly dedicated to subsistence farming and livestock. The frequent droughts bring with them famines, which worsen the already difficult living conditions of the population.The typical diet is not balanced, especially for children under five years of age, as it is poor of fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals and based for the most part on carbs.Thanks to the “Green Bracelets” project, in collaboration with the congregation of the Nuns Daughters of Sant’Anna, we support the balanced and complete nutrition of children.

The project consists of periodical checkups for the youngest and a supply of food supplements over a nine-month period. Thanks to the project, a child is monitored and periodically visited until he or she reaches the appropriate weight for his or her age. The project also grants education for mothers on the topics of nutrition, hygiene and infant diseases, over the complete cycle of an average of nine months.

The Mediolanum Foundation partly supported the project.

Goals of the project
  • To prevent premature death of children due to malnutrition.
  • To promote the right to Food.
  • To supervise the nourishment, the hygienic conditions and the medical status of the family members.
Beneficiaries of the project
  • Children with serious malnutrition in rural villages.
