Over 70% of Malawi lives beneath the poverty line, with the poorest earning less than £139 each year. This situation in Malawi has worsened even more with Cyclone Freddy threatening thousands of lives. In fact, the cyclone recorded more energy over its lifetime than an entire US hurricane season.
But food is their answer.
With regular school meals, the children of Malawi can finally get the nutrition they need to grow up healthily and attend school. Learning on a full stomach will give them the chance they need to focus on their studies and achieve an education to unlock a brighter future.
Laida and her five children are just some of the 5.4 million in Malawi who suffer from chronic food insecurity.

Food is their answer.
With regular and nutritious school meals available, Laida can send her children to school. This gives her much-needed financial relief, but it also allows her children to become healthy, educated and in a better position for a brighter future.
