In Mozambique, where two out of five children are malnourished, programmes of the Aga Khan Foundation – with the support of Global Affairs Canada – have helped train communities to harvest essential crops and prepare nutritious meals. Using a community approach to combat malnutrition, members of a village come together to learn about proper nutrition, and the nutrient-rich foods that are available locally. Working together, they educate their neighbours and organise gatherings to share nutritious meals.
Watch this short video, Tomas’s Story: How a peanut can save a life, where we meet Ruquia and her son Tomas from the village of Pitolha – and learn how Ruquia credits the nutrition group for saving Tomas’s life.
