Saving Children’s Lives

When Fatima arrived to our therapeutic feeding centre in Afghanistan, she was suffering from Severe Acute Malnutrition – the most dangerous form of malnutrition.

In Afghanistan an estimated 3.2 million children under the age of five are expected to suffer from acute malnutrition this coming year. Without urgent action, over 1 million children under the age of five are at risk of dying from severe acute malnutrition.

UNICEF teams are on the ground in Afghanistan and are ready to help. Fatima was given immediate treatment of Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food.

Thanks to our supporters, Fatima has gained 1.5 kilograms in the past weeks and is on her way to recovery.
