Haroun’s story

Haroun is from Goz Beida, Chad and unfortunately, her situation is not dissimilar from thousands of starving children around the world. She was rushed to hospital suffering from cramps, diarrhoea, vomiting and a fever, and was treated for severe acute malnutrition. Haroun was hospitalised for 16 days and thankfully she survived – but not all children are so fortunate.

Over three million children die from malnutrition each year around the world. But you can help prevent this. With a gift of just €2 a week – or €8 a month – you can help provide a child with a life free from hunger.
