Nearly 1.4 million children are at imminent risk of death from severe acute malnutrition in Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen where they face the threat of famine and in South Sudan where famine has been declared in parts of the country.
We need to help these children now.
UNICEF and partners are working around the clock, providing therapeutic food treatment to children in need. The use of ready-to-use therapeutic food such as Plumpy’Nut is UNICEF’s most effective tool for treating acute and sever acute malnutrition. The energy and nutrient-packed paste can help an undernourished child gain up to two pounds in a week and can transform a child from near death to survival in six weeks.
