ADO’s interventions extended in Raymah and Al-Hodeidah Governorates

ADO Chairwoman Dr. Aisha Thawab has confirmed that the organization has been keen to expand its interventions in the field of nutrition to include five districts in Raymah Governorate, and three districts in Al-Hodeida Governorate to fight malnutrition due to its negative effects in all aspects of life which impede human and economic development. As Yemen still faces a great burden of acute and chronic malnutrition, the conflict continues unabated, the situation worsens and the number of malnourished children rises daily. Currently, more than 1.8 million children under the age of `five years are suffering from acute malnutrition, including about 500,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition and in urgent need of therapeutic feeding program interventions. Dr. Thawab pointed out that ADO has accelerated its interventions in the field of nutrition to prevent and treat severe acute malnutrition among children in health facilities in Raymah and Hodeidah Governorates.
