Investing in childhood nutrition is essential for prosperity, particularly in a world where a nation’s greatest resource has become the intellectual power of its people. However, when one in five pre-schoolers is stunted and risks learning difficulties due to malnutrition, where micronutrient deficiencies permanently damage young brains, and where hunger limits the potential of over 3.2 million children’s performance at school – that resource is wasted.

On 10 October 2017, IF joined the celebration of World Mental Health Day by launching our animation "Reclaiming my health", on the importance of mental health and well-being of people living with complex conditions such as Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. We want to seize the opportunity to highlight that both mental health and physical health are key to achieve balance in our lives.

Poverty is the leading cause of hunger, but poverty also results from hunger, and we need to do more to break this cycle. Statistics SA shows that poverty figures are on the rise, with more than half of the population living in poverty, most of whom are children and African. 13.8 million people live below the Food Poverty Line – an increase of 2,3 million since 2011.
