Help starving children
You can help provide a life without hunger
No child should have to suffer the agonising pain of starvation. Leonel, and children like him all around the world, deserve a life without hunger – and you can help make this a reality.
By donating to Concern on regular basis you can help give children like Leonel a lifetime without hunger. Your donation of just €2 a week – or €8 a month – can provide lifesaving food and treatment for Leonel, and children like him.
Your regular donation really can transform a child’s life forever.
Leonel is just 18 months old, but he has already experienced the agonising pain of hunger.
Leonel lives in a small room with his mother, Ivy, in Mathare slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Only 7 months ago Leonel was a happy, healthy little boy. But when Ivy struggled to secure work, she could no longer afford to feed Leonel, or herself.
When Concern’s community health volunteers first met Leonel he was weak, his tummy was swollen, and he was in a lot of pain. He had no energy to move and his little eyes were hollow with despair.
Baby Leonel was suffering from severe acute malnutrition and his state had deteriorated so badly he had to be referred to hospital for further treatment.
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.
