Somalia: Children recover from acute malnutrition

15-10-2013 Feature

The ICRC has 33 feeding programmes in south-central Somalia. Each year, we treat over 20,000 children with severe acute malnutrition in the clinics that we are supporting in conjunction with the Somalia Red Crescent Society. As well as feeding these children, we help their families generate an income, spreading the benefit still more widely. Hilary Floate is the nutritionist for our Somalia delegation. She tells us about the programme and how rewarding it is for her to see children recover from malnutrition.
