Malnutrition is the root cause of many childhood diseases in Ivory Coast where one out of three children will not live to celebrate their fifth birthday.


The political and social crisis of 2002, and the recent global food crisis has exacerbated the precarious food insecurity the country, and intensified chronic malnutrition.


Fatoumata is Silue's 9th child and weighed only 2.2 kilograms at 6 weeks.


Only then did her mother take her to the Red Cross's Therapeutic nutrition centre, which is supported by UNICEF in Korogho.

"After giving birth, I didnt have milk for 2 weeks. A neighbour told me about a nutritional centre, But I was hoping that my breasts would start to produce milk again themselves. I even bought médication from the pharmacy to stimulate the milk, but that only worked for a couple of hours."


Silue eventually went herself to the centre where they gave her supplements to improve her milk production, as the mother's milk is the most important food for a newborn baby.

"The child suffers with malnutrition for some time, the child's growth suffers. Some parents don't accept the work "malnutrition". For them it is a kind of evil, or a devil. They prefer to pull away from the child, or abandon the child."


Children older than 6 months, suffering from severe acute malnutrition, are taken in for treatment by the centre.

"When the mothers arrive with their children, the first thing we do is explain that malnutrition is a sickness. There is no reason to leave the child. Then we explain the causes of the sickness."


Here the baby will receive supplemental milk and integrated child survival care including vaccinations and counselling for mothers on best feeding practices.

"When they arrive, we first give sugar-water to the child – after that we weigh and measure the child. Then we give the first milk to test the child's appetite. The we sensitize the mother and explain that if she follows the treatment, the child will recover and become strong like other children. But for this she must be courageous and strong."
