We Need Your Help to Rewrite the Story of Childhood Malnutrition

We Need Your Help to Rewrite the Story of Childhood Malnutrition

On June 2, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and VII Photo launched “Starved for Attention,” an international multimedia campaign on the neglected crisis of childhood malnutrition. An estimated 195 million children

worldwide suffer from the effects of malnutrition.

In fact, malnutrition contributes to at least one-third of the eight million annual deaths of children under five years of age.

But right now, the international humanitarian food aid system provides nutritionally inadequate foods to malnourished children under two years of age—the population most vulnerable to this treatable and preventable condition.

This situation must stop.

Sign the petition to support MSF's efforts to demand that governments supplying humanitarian food aid ensure that the food meets the nutritional needs of infants and young children.

On World Food Day 2010, MSF will present the petition to the top food aid donor countries. You can be a part of the movement to rewrite the story of

childhood malnutrition.

Thank you for your support
