Many families in Uganda are desperately poor and live under the permanent threat of hunger, with around 29% of children believed to be malnourished.
Part of the problem is inadequate harvest preparation and storage facilities, with these problems causing the loss of up to 30% of crops. Income from the crops’ sale is therefore reduced and whole families are at risk of both insufficient nutrition and its associated consequences such as maternal and infant mortality, failure to thrive, and impaired physical and mental development.
