Save the Children, a leading organization aiding children around the world, called on the British House of Commons to stage an inquiry into the Department for International Development’s global child malnutrition policy. According to the group, the donor agency’s approach “lacked focus and adequate resources.” Save the Children director of policy David Mepham said that “while DFID is a global leader on health and education and many other aspects of development, child hunger and nutrition appear to be a ‘blind spot’ … the existing response from the U.K., E.U. and other donors does not match the scale of the problem.” (Source: Save the Children calls for inquiry into government ‘blind spot’ on child hunger and malnutrition/Politics.co.uk)
