The effects of diarrhoea can be life-threatening in places like Malawi, where 40 percent of children under two suffer from it. Working with communities through our effective hygiene practice programme, we are educating people like Mary (pictured with her daughter Ruth) how to store and reheat food safely, to prevent contamination that often occurs in leftover food. Our interventions have so far cut the incidence of dangerous diarrhoea in half.
