Volunteers a critical success factor in the fight against malnutrition in Sudan

In Sudan's western region of Darfur, millions of people have found sanctuary in Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps. In the camps, children, pregnant and lactating women are the most vulnerable and risk exposure to conditions such as malnutrition due to risk factors such as lack of enough diet, lack of safe water, poor sanitation facilities are lack of them and poor hygiene conditions.

World Vision is one of the international NGOs working in several camps in South Darfur state, providing essential nutrition services to the most vulnerable IDPs.

To ensure that everyone in need is reached, World Vision is working alongside community volunteers who have been adequately trained to detect early signs of malnutrition and other deficiencies in children, pregnant and lactating women. This is critical because this ensures they receive the necessary treatment early enough.
