Paulo is just over 6 months and he has been diagnosed moderately malnourished. His 14-year-old sister Ngueve took him to World Vision’s nutrition screening.   
She says:
 I took Paulo to the nutrition screening, where I learned many things. We were told that there are many diseases related to nutrition and that, if a child doesn’t eat right, it can get very sick. I was told that Paulo should only be breastfed. We also learned about water and that a child should never drink water that has not been boiled before or treated with tablets. We should not drink it straight from the well. I learned that Paulo should be fed twice a day.   
   
It was difficult seeing Paulo cry for many days. He had a fever and was not doing well. He is still crying, but we have medicine (plumpy nut) for him now and I know he will get better. I’m very relieved.

#Budget2017

Tell your federal MP that aid cuts in #Budget2017 lack humanity

After reducing aid to the lowest level ever, the Turnbull Government has cut aid again in #Budget2017.

Cutting aid to people in poverty while giving billions to big corporations is unfair, short sighted and lacks humanity.

Aid cuts harm real people. Let your MP know this cruel cut is unacceptable and you want the Government to repair Australian Aid.
