Help Save Children in Nigeria
In Nigeria, up to 90,000 children could die this year from severe malnutrition. The causes are many — civil conflict, severe food insecurity, disease, floods and displacement. Beyond these challenges, a recent cholera outbreak is further imperilling the lives of Nigeria’s children. The situation is growing worse by the day – if we don’t act now, many more children risk losing their lives.
Our Work for Children in Nigeria
Save the Children in Nigeria is distributing food to vulnerable families, reaching nearly 16,500 people. Our teams have established therapeutic feeding centers and outreach centers that provide food for infants and young children suffering from malnutrition.
We also run a stabilisation center for severely malnourished children with complications. Save the Children is also working to strengthen health systems and support maternal and child health in four northern states.
