Due to increased drought and political instabilities, Western Uganda especially Isingiro district has faced a challenge of food scarcity hence higher malnutrition especially in refugee camps of Nakivali and Kyagwali.
This has resulted into increased deaths and signs of malnutrition are high especially in young children bellow five years of age. Swollen bellies and stunted growth is a common aspect in children of these areas.
We are to produce grinded fish powder mixed with other crop materials especially cassava or maize flour and other vitamins to provide a single compound mixture with higher nutritional value.
This will help save people's lives especially in the refugee camp and entire Western Uganda.
With the high population in Kigezi region, also food problems have resulted and a need to combat malnutrition among children is needed
