Improving the nutritional status of vulnerable young children significantly impacts their growth. The COVID-19 Pandemic has reduced access to and the affordability of healthy diets which translates into less diverse meals particularly among vulnerable young children. As a result, one of the main areas of intervention to reduce the secondary impact of COVID-19 is improving food security for these beneficiaries.
Ministry of Interior and UNICEF Iran in partnership with Iran-Switzerland Chamber of Commerce and its members are developing an effective intervention of Food Packages targeting under five children who are at risk of undernutrition in less-advantaged provinces.
Iran-Switzerland Chamber of Commerce would like to invite member companies to join the national Campaign of “Stand with Us” via financial contributions and contributions in kind to support healthy eating in priority provinces in Iran.
