Project Activities

World Action Fund, with support from US Embassy Kampala support a project : Reducing carbon emission through afforestation

Nutrition project

World Action Fund provides lifesaving vitamins to children 6-59 months at risk of malnutrition — reducing preventable illness, blindness, and death — to create a healthier world.​

Malnutrition threatens to destroy a generation of children in Uganda. More than one third of all young children – 2.4 million – are stunted. The damage caused by stunting is irreversible. Half of children under five and one quarter of child-bearing-age women are anemic. The problem persists despite a drop in stunting and anemia rates in recent years.

Promote children growth and improve mothers health

Whether poor or wealthy, children are malnourished for similar reasons. Women tend to get pregnant when young and have low birth-weight babies, which predisposes children to malnutrition. Repeated childhood infections such as diarrhoea and low breastfeeding rates also lead to wasting and stunting. Families are either too poor, or do not know how, to give their children a healthy diet. The 2012 study, Cost of Hunger in Uganda, estimated the health cost of children’s under nutrition-related illnesses (for those under five) to be more than UGX 525 billion, most of which was used for treating under nutrition and associated illnesses. It is also estimated that under nutrition costs Uganda 1.8 trillion UGX annually.

Prenatal Multivitamins

Prenatal vitamins are supplements that contain daily vitamins and minerals you need before and during your pregnancy. Folic acid is the most important vitamin to take when planning a pregnancy. Folic acid is a B vitamin that cells in your body need for growing and developing.

Uganda halved its maternal mortality to 343/100,000 live births between 1990 and 2015, but did not meet the Millennium Development Goal 5. Skilled, timely and good quality antenatal (ANC) and delivery care can prevent the majority of maternal/newborn deaths and stillbirths. We examine coverage, equity, sector of provision

Gynecology recommend that all pregnant women take a prenatal vitamin and folic acid supplement. This is advised to fill nutritional gaps and prevent birth defects like spina bifida (9). For these reasons, many moms-to-be turn to vitamin and mineral supplements
