Organizational Background:

Catholic Caritas Foundation of Nigeria (Caritas Nigeria), is a Not-for-Profit Humanitarian and Development Agency established by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), to coordinate at the national level, the social development interventions of the Catholic Church in Nigeria.  Caritas Nigeria works to fight hunger, disease and ignorance as well as responds to humanitarian crises and emergencies by mobilizing resources from within and outside the Church to meet the basic needs of affected persons, regardless of religion, nationality or ethnicity.

Project Background:

Malnutrition is the prime cause of morbidity for all groups; with Iron deficiency as the leading cause for maternal deaths. Poor maternal nutrition, suboptimal infant and young child feeding practices and limited access to nutritious food in many conflict affected communities of North-Eastern (NE) Nigeria have contributed greatly to the high incidences of malnutrition, morbidity and mortality rates among the under- five’s and pregnant/lactating women in the NE. Two million people have been estimated by OCHA as suffering from moderate to severe acute malnutrition (SAM), of which 745,000 of the severely malnourished are in the Six [6] NE states. On the average, 5-10% of children with SAM are expected to be complicated; this means that about 37,250 to 74,500 of the SAM children would have complications and be referred to inpatient services for appropriate treatment.
