Malnutrition in Darfur

25 September 2013. Abu Shouk: Two volunteers of NGO Kuwait Patient Helping Fund carry a box of oil to prepare mixture for malnourished children in Abu Shouk camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP), North Darfur. This mixture is composed with corn, soy, wheat, sugar and oil, given by the World Food Program (WFP) to be distributed through a program called Integrated Blanket Supplementary Feeding. Every child under 3 years old and those with moderate malnutrition up to 6 years old can access to the distribution of this feeding (1,7 kg and 3,4 kg for 15 days, respectively). Pregnant and lactating women can also receive the mixture for several months.
The local NGO has 3 centers of distribution in Abu Shouk and two more in Al Salam camp.
