The Ministry of Health is heaping praise on contributions by the Hunger Project Malawi in ending malnutrition in the country.
The praise by Deputy Minister of Health Chrissy Kalamula Kanyasho was made when she inspected some projects that are being implemented by the organization in Nsanje district.
According to Kanyasho, there is need for other organizations to emulate the project’s success which she says is critical in taming malnutrition.
On her part, Hunger Project Malawi, Country Manager Grace Chikowi said the project dubbed Scaling Up Nutrition funded by KFW through Unicef has indeed reduced cases of malnutrition in Nsanje district.
Chikowi said the five-year project is currently also being implemented in Phalombe and there are plans for extension to other districts.
