The department has 3 main goals namely;
- Save lives and alleviate suffering by providing nutrition care with regard to human dignity in all Nile hope operation areas
- Ensure communities in Nile Hope operation areas are capacity-built to cope with significant threats to their nutrition status
- Strengthen NH Nutrition department’s capacity to implement nutrition activities in the changing environment
The organization started implementing therapeutic nutrition services in 2007. Nile Hope’s Nutrition department is responsible for implementing mainly emergency nutrition interventions that seek to rehabilitate malnourished children below five years, pregnant and lactating women as well as other vulnerable members of the communities in both host communities and IDPs. The work done in this department contribute significantly to SDG 1,2,3 and to an extent 10, 16 and 17. The scope of work spans across 3 former states (Upper Nile state, Jonglei state and Unity) and five former counties of Pigi, Akobo, Leer, Fangak and Nassir.
