In Mozambique in 2000, a boy toddler, sick with a fever from malaria, rests his head on his mother's lap, outside a health post set up in Sta. Carmela Church in the town of Chokwe in the southern part of the province of Gaza, one of the regions most severely affected by the flooding. The health post is run by the international NGO Medecins Sans Frontieres, which also distributes high-energy biscuits supplied by UNICEF.
