Madagascar: fighting the nightmare of severe acute malnutrition

In one of the poorest regions of one of the poorest countries of the world, drought, lack of clean water, and destroyed crops threaten children with severe acute malnutrition.

EU humanitarian aid funding, together with support from UNICEF, helps children and their families in Madagascar deal with this threat. The support provides them not only with ready-to-use therapeutic foods, but also with follow-up monitoring of the children’s health.
