INTERNATIONAL RESCUE COMMITTEE, INC.: A malnourished child receives treatment in Nigeria

Binta Hassan and her young son Ali at the IRC stabilisation centre for severely acutely malnourished (SAM) children in Maiduguri, northeast Nigeria. Children are triaged to the stabilisation centre from the community. They receive treatment, nutritious meals and essentials like soap, washing detergent and nappies (diapers). Mothers can stay with their children throughout their time at the stabilisation centre, and once the children are well enough they are discharged with a small kit of essentials like rice and cooking oil.
