Summary: 

In recognition that malnutrition is an enemy to the country’s development, the Irish government and the World Food Programme (WFP) towards the end of last year signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a K225 million grant to support Malawi government in its Supplementary Feeding Programmes (SFPs). (..) WFP Country Director, Abdulaye Diop, also hailed the grant saying the contribution from the Irish Aid to Malawi’s fight against malnutrition was timely. “It will enable us to reach out more malnourished pregnant or lactating women and children in the country,” Diop said.
