Holystic Nutrition Org, is a community based NGO located in Obuasi, Ghana. The organization is currently running a project: SMALCHILD Project. Save the MALnourished CHILD Project. An initiative to mobilize support for the treatment of all undernourished children in the Obuasi municipality of Ghana.
Child undernutrition is not just a health problem but a gross barrier to the sustainable socioeconomic development of any society.
The project has now enrolled and supported about 20 SAM, Severe Acute Malnutrition Children through inpatient and outpatient management.
The project is currently faced with challenges of funds acquisition and other resources to mobilize and support these children with undernutrition.

We therefore seek your concerns as to how we can get donor partnerships and acquire needed funds to help these vulnerable children.
Please, what should we do?
