Monsanto Fund Helps Africare Address Malnutrition in Kenya
Turkana County, Kenya is in the throes of a critical food emergency. Record malnutrition rates, erratic climate and a disruption of traditional food sources have led the World Health Organization to designate the area as an Acute Food and Livelihood Crisis. But, thanks to a grant from the Monsanto Fund, Africare will soon start helping pregnant women, new mothers, infants and young children live healthier lives by increasing access to nutritious foods and nutrition education.
