Chad’s Hunger Season Ends But Malnutrition Remains
Every year, the people of Chad face recurrent food crises, putting tremendous strain on families and communities.
"We have made a small step forward,” says Marcus Bachmann, MSF’s project coordinator in Biltine. “The total number of children in our program has decreased—from 1,300 in June to 1,000 in September. But we are still seeing an average of 200 new admissions per week. That means there are still many severely malnourished children."
Though the hunger season may be drawing to a close, underlying problems remain and need to be addressed.
