The Developing World:
- Food is one of the most fundamental needs. Every night over 1 billion people go to bed hungry.
- Malnutrition is the greatest health problem facing humanity and is the biggest drag on economical development in the developing world.
- It is estimated that over 300 million children are suffering from chronic malnutrition with approximately 10 million children dying from severe acute malnutrition each year.
- Malnutrition creates a poverty trap preventing adults from working and children attending school.
- Malnutrition is a curable disease - ready to use products, produced in Malawi can be used to treat severe acute malnutrition.
- 3 million people in the UK are at risk of malnutrition.
- It costs approximately £13 billion a year to treat illnesses resulting from malnutrition
- UK grassroots charities are struggling to keep up with this increased demand as a result of the economic crisis and are in need of extra support
How we deliver our promise
One Feeds Two™ is a model based on sharing. It is recognised that when we share with others we should do so in a way that helps that person, rather than hindering them. For that reason Elephant Juice Food Co partners with organisations running grassroots projects intended to develop individuals suffering from severe poverty in order that they can become self-sustaining.
At this time we are currently working with a feeding partners working in India, Africa and the Philippines running feeding programmes in educational settings . As the movement grows we intend to partner with organisations working in the UK as well as those working to tackle the problem of severe acute malnutrition overseas with the help of Ready to Use Therapeutic Foods.
