Almost each and every food crop does well in Mulanje district no wonder the district is described as a food basket.

But despite all these foods, malnutrition levels remain high.

Director of Planning and Development at Mulanje District Council, Mercy Mpakule, told Zodiak that current statistics indicate that stunting among under five children is at 34%.

“The Council in partnership with other stakeholders is implementing various projects with an ambitious target of reducing stunting down to 10% by 2022,” said Mpakule.

Meanwhile Malawi Red Cross Society (MRCS) through its three year

Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) project is supporting Community Complementary Feeding and Learning Sessions (CCFLS) in Traditional Authority Mabuka.

“We at MRCS believes that CCFLS will help the organization reduce stunting by 2% by the end of the project,” said MRCS District

Coordinator Innocent Chikuni.
