Mercy Hospital Nutrition Program logo
Malnutrition is the single greatest cause of child mortality in Sierra Leone. Nearly a third of children under age five are chronically malnourished.

Mercy Hospital screens babies and toddlers for malnutrition at the hospital and at village outreaches. Malnourished children are enrolled in the Nutrition Program and their parents receive a feeding supplement called Sierramix. The child’s progress is closely monitored, and when they reach a healthy weight, they are discharged from the program.

Just $25 provides nutritional supplementation and monitoring for three malnourished children, providing life-saving treatment and renewed hope for their families.
