니제르 어린이 15%가 중증영양실조로 고통 받습니다

2006.11.15
Women of Zinder Niger line up with their babies to be treated for malnutrition. Just some of the 300,000 children treated in this year of crisis for Niger’s children. This has been the face of Niger 2005, but it could be any year. A new study shows that more than 15 percent of all children here suffer acute malnutrition. In a country with one of highest child mortality rates in the world this has been a normal year for Niger’s children. Markets are brimming with great mounds of food, but it’s sold off to neighboring Nigeria to pay back debts. It’s become a vicious cycle of dependency and debt and old habits haven’t helped. Villages with cereal storage banks have fared better. Men rule the roost here and even decide when a child should be treated for malnutrition. Large families means there’s less to go around. Rahamou Seidou is pregnant with her seventh child now. Soundbite, Hausa, Rahamou Seidou, mother: “My husband is responsible for everything in the home. He has to solve all the problems concerning our children.” Soundbite, French, Dr. Kourna Mamadou Hama, pediatrician at Niamey Hospital: “In Nigerian society, a father can forbid his wife to take the child to health care, even if the child is sick, the mother cannot take the child to the clinic.” Changing poor feeding practices is the biggest challenge for Niger. Mothers don’t breast feed long enough and there are taboos about certain food. Soundbite, French, Dr. Kourna Mamadou Hama, pediatrician at Niamey Hospital: “Among certain societies, it’s forbidden to give eggs to a child because it’s believed he’ll become a thief, and fish is also forbidden so in fact essential nutrients are not allowed.” For the year ahead, humanitarian organizations are gearing up to ease the burden on Niger’s children and try to reverse the trend of hunger. This is Sarah Crowe for UNICEF in Niger.
