동부아프리카, 심각한 영양실조 위협 받는 어린이

2006.11.16
Alive but only just, four-month-old Ahmed got to this hospital in the nick of time. His Mother Sainaba was too undernourished herself to produce breast milk so she carried her only son 80 kilometres – a four day walk. Soundbite (Somali) Sainaba Dahir, Ahmed’s Mother: “This drought is very bad. Most of our animals have died, we have only a few camels left.” Like the other infants being treated at this UNICEF-funded clinic in Ethiopia’s Somali region, Ahmed was admitted suffering from severe acute malnutrition but will recover after three weeks of therapeutic feeding. After two years of drought and in spite of recent rains, more than 40,000 children in the Horn of Africa face the indignity of a slow death by starvation. But getting children to hospital is only one solution. This mobile health team is one of dozens fanning out across the region to assist the nomadic communities who roam this arid land in search of grazing for their livestock. These government nurses – trained, funded and supplied by UNICEF – can provide timely healthcare where it is needed most. Soundbite (Somali) Mohamed Bihi Ahmed, Mobile Health Team leader: “These nomadic people are very far away from towns so it is important for the mobile health team to come to them. We can go anywhere -- that’s a benefit for children in particular.” Undernourished children are sent home with sachets of Plumpy Nut – a high-protein peanut-based therapeutic food which children love. Late seasonal rains may relieve the situation slightly but the damage to lives of these pastoralists and their children has already been done. In Ethiopia’s Somali region, this is Dan Thomas reporting for UNICEF Television. UNITE for children. *** Asset Name : UNICEF: HORN OF AFRICA CHILD ALERT/MALNUTRITION Asset Duration: 02 min 21 secs Shoot City: Somali Region Shoot Country: Ethiopia Shoot Date: Apr 24 2006
