When families are far from the support systems of home, the most urgent needs are often the basics — enough to eat, enough nutrition so children can grow.

In a refugee camp in Gambella, Ethiopia, MCC canned meat provided through International Medical Corps brought needed protein and nutrients for children two years and younger and for pregnant and lactating mothers.

“I am so happy to get additional food for my child,” says 19-year-old Nyachoat Gatkek, who fled from South Sudan and is shown with her six-month-old daughter Nyagoa. “My big worry these days is that my children are not getting enough to eat and so not growing well.”
