“Consuming spirulina has been linked to recovery from diseases like cancer and autism,” said Remigio M. Maradona, ambassador director-general of Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Micro-algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition. Maradona is currently leading a high-level IIMSAM delegation to Qatar after gathering support for his institution in the United Arab Emirates.

“Spirulina has now become a buzzword in Kenya. Now that Kenya has become a part of our official treaty, we’re pushing the Kenyan government to make it a national spirulina programme,” he said. And he plans to take the shining example from Kenya to other affected countries, including Uganda, Tanzania and Mali.

The head of a United Nations-backed body fighting malnutrition has urged Qatar to join hands in its drive to solve the crisis in many of the world’s impoverished countries.
