### Doctors With Africa CUAMM Concludes Malnutrition Phase 2 Project with Stakeholder Engagement in Pujehun

On July 3, 2024, Doctors with Africa CUAMM, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare in Africa, held a stakeholder engagement event in Pujehun District to mark the conclusion of the second phase of its malnutrition reduction project. This event brought together various stakeholders to discuss the achievements and lessons learned from the project, which was funded by Irish Aid.


The malnutrition reduction project aimed to address malnutrition in its various forms through integrated interventions in health, nutrition, food security, and livelihoods. The project targeted eight chiefdoms in Pujehun District, reaching 62 communities and 30 peripheral health units. 


Daniel Okaail, the Area Manager of CUAMM’s Pujehun base, highlighted the significant progress made during the project's implementation. He expressed gratitude to the people of Pujehun for their support and cooperation. “Through this project, we have been able to make significant strides in improving the nutritional status of children under five and women of reproductive age in Pujehun,” Okaail said. “We are grateful for the support and collaboration of the local authorities and communities, which has been instrumental in the success of our interventions.”


District Health Sister Ella Sawyer praised CUAMM for its contributions to the district’s healthcare system, noting that the organization's efforts have resolved numerous health complications. She emphasized the importance of continued collaboration to further enhance healthcare and save lives in Pujehun.


Foday Kandeh Rogers, the Chairman of the Pujehun District Council, lauded CUAMM’s presence in the district, describing it as a “blessing in disguise.” He acknowledged the organization's efforts in equipping healthcare workers at the peripheral health units, which have significantly improved healthcare delivery in the district.


The Chairman Council of Paramount Chiefs Pujehun District, PC Samuel Ansumana Saffa Gbonda, also commended CUAMM's lifesaving work in the district, welcoming the attendees and acknowledging the organization's positive impact on the community.


As the second phase of the malnutrition project concludes, Doctors with Africa CUAMM has assured the local community of its continued presence and commitment to supporting Pujehun’s healthcare and development efforts. The event included a presentation on the project’s overview and key achievements, followed by a question-and-answer session with the stakeholders. This engagement provided a platform for discussing future initiatives and ensuring sustained improvements in the health and well-being of the people in Pujehun.
