Child Hunger Climbing in Malawi in Wake of Drought


 

Food shortages are growing worse in Malawi as the yield from this year’s disappointing harvest runs out for many small farmers. Across southern Africa, El-Nino-induced drought and flooding since last year have left over 30 million people in need of food aid.

In Balaka, 47 percent of residents are facing food shortages. That is the highest figure of all the affected districts across the country. Many people here are down to one meal a day.
 
Anne Matebule is a single mother of four children. She said because of the drought, she only managed to harvest only one 50-kilogram bag of maize this year. She usually harvests 25 bags.
 
She said she relies on doing gardening and other odd jobs to feed her children.
 
She said, "my children are suffering. We usually only eat once a day. We can eat twice a day only when I am given sweet potatoes as payment for doing some day labor."
 
Thomas Biseck, a health officer in the district, told VOA the number of malnourished children has quadrupled.
 
“The levels of malnutrition in Balaka are a bit alarming compared to last year. The very same period last year, we had about 12 per cent. But this year, it’s about 52 per cent, which means that as were are scaling up towards March next year, the situation will be a bit out of our control,” he said.
 
The effects of child malnutrition can last a lifetime. They can lead to stunting and developmental delays and even impact of child’s future earning potential.
