Dear Friends and Partners,
The growing COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us in ways we cannot have predicted. We hope you and your families are well.
As the world unites in its response, The need of Food is closely monitoring the fast-changing landscape to ensure our operations are seamless and the health and wellbeing of our staff, partners and colleagues is prioritised.
We know that the most vulnerable are hit the hardest during crises. Now, more than ever, health systems across the entire world must be strengthened to ride out the inevitable economic and social impact of COVID-19. Our beneficiaries need us more than ever. We urge our partners to remain optimistic that positive changes can still be made - and we call on your continued support and commitment to our mission.
As we ride out these uncertain times together, our promise to you is that we will continue to focus on keeping the worldwide community safe and update you on our work. Our team is fully mobilised and available online. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Feed India is an innovative foundation committed to helping children grow to their full potential to build strong and prosperous communities.
Our vision is a world where every child has access to good food. By brokering collaborative partnerships with the private and public sector we are able to unlock vital funding that will transform children's futures on a scale that few can achieve alone.
Undernutrition is the underlying cause of 45 percent of all child deaths globally. Investing in better nutrition for mothers and during early childhood - especially during the crucial first 1,000 days of life - is proven to be one of the best means we have to transform a child's health, education and livelihood.
Yet nutrition is still chronically underfunded; global spending by donors on undernutrition is 0.5 percent of Overseas Development Assistance (Global Nutrition Report 2017) and less than 1 percent of national government budgets.
The Power of Nutrition seeks to drive investment at scale in proven interventions that will help to reduce undernutrition in countries where the burden is most acute.
