Severe acute malnutrition kills as many as two million young children every year.
Nyankir was nearly one of those children. The one-year-old girl was so malnourished she had no strength to swallow and could barely blink her eyes. Her parents carried her for eight hours in the scorching heat to reach an Action Against Hunger Nutrition Center in South Sudan.
Nyankir received emergency care to rehydrate her and was admitted for intensive treatment. Finally, her little body began to respond. What could have been a devastating situation turned into one of relief and joy.
Action Against Hunger has proven treatments to save the lives of malnourished children — in fact, 90 percent of children who complete treatment are cured. For more than 40 years, we have been dedicated to a single mission: to find the best solutions to hunger and malnutrition.
