This photograph was captured in 2011, when the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had partnered with the World Food Programme (WFP), in order to conduct an impact evaluation of the Blanket Supplementary Feeding Program (BSFP), in two counties in the African nation of Kenya. Depicted here, were members of this interagency partnership.

“In July 2011, over 10-million people in East Africa required emergency assistance during the worst drought in 60-years. Surveys in northern Kenya, revealed acute malnutrition prevalence up to 37%, far exceeding the critical level of 15%.This prompted the World Food Programme to implement a BSFP to prevent incident malnutrition in children. This evaluation assessed the impact of BSFP on the nutritional status of children. The WFP is the food assistance branch of the United Nations, which promotes food security throughout the World.”
