Hope for the Land

Description

With efforts to improve maternal and child health and nutrition, World Vision aims to directly help 1.5 million Malawi children through 2015.

Malawi, known as “the warm heart of Africa,” is hurting. The country faces recurring hunger issues.

Widespread drought in 2012 caused major food shortages and further degraded Malawi’s already fragile agricultural system.

World Vision helps thousands of Malawi farmers to increase crop yields through irrigation farming, rainwater harvesting, resource management, and the introduction of drought-resistant seeds. Some farmers have learned to raise dairy animals, providing important new sources of nutrition and income.

Many communities now have World Vision-trained volunteers to monitor growth in malnourished children. With efforts to improve maternal and child health and nutrition, World Vision aims to directly help 1.5 million Malawi children through 2015.
