Action Against Hunger has named a finalist by Project 7 to receive $15,000. This funding would help them treat 75 severely malnourished children in the in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are working against time to save the children, as they are literally on the brink of starvation there.Treating these children is not simply a matter of feeding them normal foods. Because their bodily functions are shutting down, they need special nutritional therapy and around-the-clock care.

Please take a minute and go vote. It literally only takes a few clicks of your time. You can view the finalists on Project 7’s website:
