XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

Aid agencies provide nutritional support to
pregnant mothers, children in S. Sudan

JUBA, (Xinhua) -- The World Food Program (WFP) and the World Vision on Tuesday announced that they were teaming up to provide nutritional support to pregnant women and children below five years in South Sudan.

Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan, the WFP goodwill ambassador who is on a four-day visit to South Sudan, said adequate nutrition for pregnant mothers and their infants is key to boost their physical and mental health.

“Proper nutrition has the ability to boost a child’s physical health and cognitive abilities. It is therefore critical to provide nutritional support to young ones from their conception to other stages of development,” Zeid told Journalists in Juba.

Damaris Wanjiku, South Sudan’s World Vision Nutrition Project Manager, said they have over 700 children admitted into the program with severe and moderate malnutrition.
