Child in need

Seven million people are hungry and half a million children face critical health problems, or even death, if not treated in time. Too weak to drink or eat solids, a child at an Action Against Hunger centre is fed therapeutic milk through a naso-gastric tube, to provide her with the nutrients she needs to survive and ultimately recover.
