Filled with staples like beans, cooking oil, fortified cereal blends and sugar, it’s a basic food basket with an impact that is anything but. This gift of food for thousands of pregnant women, mothers and young children under five who are malnourished is a critical step to prevent a slide into a life-and-death situation and instead restore children to health. Basket by basket, you’ll be saving lives.
During disasters, children may be separated from their families, and girls are at risk of being trafficked or experiencing violence and forced labour. Plan International responds immediately, providing families with shelter, food, clean water, household essentials and medical supplies as well as ensuring children are safe.
Did you know that more than 400,000 people die each year from malaria? Mosquito nets that are treated with insecticide and last up to three years are a simple and effective preventative solution. This gift provides families with mosquito nets and training in how to use them. According to the World Health Organization, 95% of the world’s malaria cases are in Africa. Children under five are most at risk because they have yet to develop any immunity.
Increase families' incomes and communities' access to food, even during the toughest of seasons, by establishing and equipping resilient vegetable nurseries and greenhouses in regions with poor growing conditions affected by climate issues. Plus, these gardens double as hubs for community training so people can learn and sow a thriving future together.
This gift provides girls in low-income countries with pads and period education so they can stay healthy, safe and in school and are able to access the same opportunities as boys. It also supports community education programs that address the shame-inducing stigmas that are associated with one of the most natural events in a girl's life.
