NutriAid

NutriAid is an independent humanitarian organization, created in 1996, involved in the reduction of child malnutrition, primarily with a medical-scientific approach through programs in areas of emergencies caused by conflicts, violence or natural catastrophes.

NutriAid has been working in Rwanda for 17 years and the project in this country is now done, but other projects have been open in Senegal, Madagascar, Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia in past years. Anyway one of the organization's goals is to expand its area of interventions.

Generally its first interventions consist of building, supporting and managing medical centres in order to treat acute, severe or moderate and chronic malnutrition. It realizes sanitary programs through its own technical unit sending - in developing countries - specialized medical equip: first of all paediatricians and experts on malnutrition. In addition it creates programs related to food security, with the purpose to assure the rights to access to nutritional resources and to implement their distribution, with particular attention to the exploitation of the food requirement of children, not only based on the food help but on the ability to assure a sustainable and autonomous development of the beneficiaries.

NutriAid also sustains families in projects of agricultural development and breeding to prevent the relapses of hunger and poverty situations. It operates in partnership with important international institutions (as PAM, Unicef and the World Health Organization) and local Ministry of the Health and the Family, Provinces, Districts, Sanitary Directions, Hospitals. It also organizes seminars and courses in Italy and in countries of intervention to prepare medical staff and also to educate families of malnourished children, with special focus on mothers.
