WFP welcomes Japan’s contribution of $1.5m to nutrition

World Food Programme

Childrens physical and intellectual development can be irreversibly damaged if they do not receive proper nutrition during the first 1,000 days, from conception until a child reaches two years of age. Together with Japan, and working in close partnership with our host governments, we will proactively move to prevent under nutrition from taking root, Gomez. It said to determine suitable methods of collaboration on nutrition, WFP has initiated discussions with Ghana and Sierra Leone, as well as with UN agencies and several Japanese partners including the Japan International Cooperation Agency, non-governmental organisations, and the private sector. It stated that in Sierra Leone, WFP is also partnering with the United Nations Population Fund on issues of health, well-being and nutritional status of adolescent girls and women particularly during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The statement said this financial package follows the Fifth Tokyo International Conference on African Development held in Japan in June, when WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin and Parliamentary Vice-Minister Abe reaffirmed the importance of adequate nutrition for mothers and children, and agreed to launch nutrition programmes in Africa. An estimated 165 million children suffer from stunting globally, and in sub-Saharan Africa a staggering 40 per cent of children under the age of five are stunted. Although stunting rates in Ghana average 23 per cent, in food-insecure areas, such as in the Northern Region, the rates are as high as 37 per cent.
