In Rajasthan alone, one in every 15 children die before reaching the age of one. Our funding (your donations) is being used for a project in Kishanganj, a rural area in Baran, eastern Rajasthan, characterised by very poor living conditions, poor health and hygiene and a prevalence of severe malnutrition.  Here Action Against Hunger explain a bit more about the project and why India. India has the largest number of children suffering from life-threatening malnutrition in the world. A staggering eight million children under five years are at risk of life-threatening hunger. "Often families do not view malnutrition as a disease," explains Sandeep Dewal, from Action Against Hunger’s partner organisation CECOEDECON. ‘It sometimes is a long journey for us to help parents understand the devastating effects of malnutrition and the impact it can have on their children’s lives in the future.’ Action Against Hunger’s teams are working to help turn the tide of malnutrition in India by providing children with the nutrition they need to grow, develop and build their own futures.

Children like little Ramdas. His mother Somi knew Ramdas was ill and worried about his deteriorating health, but it was only after an Action Against Hunger health visitor told her he must be taken to the nutrition centre in the closest hospital that Ramdas’ health improved.  He was immediately diagnosed with life-threatening malnutrition and put on a tight treatment schedule so he could receive the urgent care and treatment he needed to regain his strength. [cycloneslider id="providing-children-with-healthier-futures-in-india"] Once he was discharged back home, he received ongoing checks as well as nutritional support to prevent him from relapsing into malnutrition. And Somi joined other mums in the village for regular health sessions aimed at ensuring that children receive the food, healthcare, stimulation and emotional support they need to grow and develop healthily. The training Somi and the other mums receive helps her to know what to do if their child falls ill at home and how to prevent and diagnose malnutrition. But there is still a long way to go to help overcome child hunger in India. Together we can provide children with happier, healthier futures."

Sabrina’s Mixed Olives with Artichokes and FetaSAbrinas Mixed Olives with Artichokes and Feta - limited edition olives

Back in September we launched a limited edition line which we produced in conjunction with Sabrina Ghayour. As a long-time ambassador of Action Against Hunger she was keen to lend her time and expertise to help us develop a special line which would donate 10p to the charity, instead of our regular 1p. Her delicious Mixed Olives with Artichokes and Feta product raised an additional £3,350 towards the project in India that unearthed’s donations are funding. We were delighted to work with Sabrina and she remains not only a friend of our brand but a dedicated supporter of Action Against Hunger.

Action Against Hunger re-brand

And finally, you may notice that the Action Against Hunger logo has changed. We’re in the process of changing it on-pack and the website will feature the new logo very soon (if not already by the time you read this post). [cycloneslider id="action-against-hunger-update-october-2016"] Jean Michel Grand, Executive Director of Action Against Hunger says that they are changing their corporate look and "we move towards a new global identity: a new identity that more clearly and powerfully explains who we are and what we stand for.
