Dangerous Rise in Severe Malnutrition Cases Cripples Central African Republic
"The Pediatric Complex usually has 56 beds available for malnourished children. In February, 256 children had to be admitted to the nutrition unit. Additional teams were hired, and we’ve added three large tents to cope with the influx. We'll probably have to build a fourth. Everyone is overwhelmed there and the hospital has reached the limits of its capabilities," explains Nicolas Fuchs, our Country Director in Central African Republic.
