Thanks for your question Whitney! We have high impact "mother to mother" support groups in many areas. We also focus specifically on treating young children, especially girls, as they have the greatest risk of falling victim to malnutrition.

"Sierra Leone is currently grabbing headlines due to the world’s worst outbreak of Ebola to date. But those working on health in this small West African country have pointed to the many other diseases and conditions that kill people on a much more regular basis. These include malaria, TB and – perhaps the largest killer – malnutrition."

We're so glad to contribute data to this powerful Washington Post article on the biggest problems in Sierra Leone.

What do rainy seasons and storms have to do with malnutrition and how policy makers can combat it? Everything.
