Fatima is 10 months old, she was admitted to a hospital in Sana’a, Yemen, after her mother grew concerned over Fatima’s month-long diarrhea. Medical staff found that she was suffering from a severe intestinal problem, vomiting, diarrhea, listlessness and a weakened pulse. Fatima was diagnosed with malnutrition and dehydration, resulting in kidney failure. She was put on a treatment programme which included fluids and antibiotics to help her recover back to good health.
Parwana was diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition during her pervious visit to the health centre. As part of Parwana's treatment, her mother brings her to the clinic every four weeks for screening and to provide her with additional RUTF if needed.Nearly 58 per cent of children in Afghanistan were living in monetary poverty and 56 per cent of children living in multi-dimensional poverty, i.e facing deprivations in one or more dimensions of poverty. In the current context, child poverty is expected to rise even further.
