Burundi

Families without food

Civil conflict continues in Burundi leaving hundreds of thousands of children and families in Burundi without food and the basic essentials with which to support themselves.
As a result, Children's Aid Direct will reach extremely vulnerable children and their mothers through health centres and hospitals. Supplementary food will be distributed to malnourished children, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers whcih will assist in reducing levels of malnutrition and infant mortality.
