Tackling life-threatening child malnutrition in Chad

October 15, 2010

"Chad, in west Africa, has suffered prolonged droughts, poor harvest and most recently, devastating floods. These 'weather shocks' have exacerbated an already chronic food crisis and one in every four children under five suffers from acute malnutrition in the west of the country. Through the West Africa Humanitarian Response Fund, the UK's Department for International Development is funding partners such as Action Against Hunger to help respond to these humanitarian crises."
