We need to sound the alarm!
According to UNICEF, almost 1,025,000 children in the Sahel region this year risk to become victims of severe malnutrition. The organization is preparing for a huge challenge and increased its supplies to therapeutic feeding. An estimated 330,600 children younger than 5 years are likely to become victims of acute malnutrition. The government of Niger has launched a distress call in which they announced that more than half of the villages are threatened with large food shortages. Other countries and regions where children will need specialized treatments are Chad, northern Nigeria, northern Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania and northern Senegal. It is time to sound the alarm!
