CASE STUDIES
Syria – Tasneem's story
To date, we've made three deliveries of Plumpy'nut to Northern Syria, where armed conflict and displacement have rendered millions of children extraordinarily vulnerable.

In late 2016, our Syrian partners spotted Tasneem in the Atmeh refugee camp. At 19 months, she weighed only 6.5kg and clearly suffered from severe acute malnutrition. Tasneem began consuming, each day, 2-3 packets of the Plumpy'nut sent by Plump'd.

"Thanks be to God, we noticed the difference after a short period and gradually we saw in the follow up visit this improvement. The good thing about these sachets is they're very easy to use any time – even at night, and anywhere. And even if she gets sick she'll continue to eat them. So now, after 3.5 months of treatment, she's better. Her weight has reached 9kg."

SIERRA LEONE – EBOLA
In 2014, our donors' generosity enabled us to purchase and deliver a large consignment of Plumpy'nut to children caught up in the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone.

According to our partners working on the ground, because of Ebola and its economic and social impacts, malnourishment in Sierra Leone, particularly for the under-fives, reached epidemic proportions.

"The Plumpy'nut you have sent us plays an invaluable role in helping to stabilise the children now coming through the doors of our health centers and hundreds of others throughout Sierra Leone. It will help give these children a fighting chance of regaining their health and vitality and making it through the first precarious five years of life here… Once again a big thank you from everyone here"

WHERE HAVE WE HELPED?
Syria
November 2016 – We delivered 60 cartons (828kg) of Plumpy'nut to vulnerable, and often desperate, children trapped in eastern Aleppo and Idlib in Northern Syria. The Plumpy'nut made it in to these areas during the notorious siege and bombardment of eastern Aleppo.
Sierra Leone
September 2015 – We delivered 40 cartons (552kg) of Plumpy'nut to Sierra Leone. The packets were used in public health facilities and hospitals in Port Loko, one of the areas hardest-hit by the Ebola virus. According to our partners on the ground, because of Ebola and its economic and social effects, malnourishment in Sierra Leone, particularly for the under-fives, reached epidemic proportions. Our Plumpy'nut has given to the children it reaches a fighting chance of survival.
Syria
October 2013 – We delivered 51 cartons (704kg) of Plumpy'nut to Northern Syria. A children's hospital distributed the packets among a community of very poor and largely displaced families, whose particular plight had been documented by the BBC. Alongside the violence and devastation of war, malnutrition among these children had risen dramatically, and the Plumpy'nut was used to care for them.
Tanzania
December 2012 – We delivered 145 cartons (2001kg) of Plumpy'nut to Mwanza and Mbeya, Tanzania. The packets were distributed by the Baylor College of Medicine's Clinical Centers of Excellence, which treat hundreds of children living with HIV in the most underserved areas. Adequate nutrition is vital in dealing with the impact of HIV, particularly on the small bodies of young children.
Who Are We?
Plump'd was founded by Alia Brahimi in 2012. It is run exclusively by volunteers.

We use your donations only for the purchase and delivery of Plumpy'nut in crisis-affected places.

Plump'd does not use donations to cover its administrative costs, meaning your funds directly help as many children as possible.
Founded by Pete Hunt, Feed Hot Dog Co. is currently our biggest donor. For every hot dog sold, FHDC gives us a packet of Plumpy'nut. Every day, their customers demonstrate that a small decision about lunch can make a big impact on children's lives. We
