In the Photo: Mulamba Lusazo 4 years old, 8.8 Kg, 124 BP MAM; he received already a first cycle of Plumpy Sup rations and a second one today; another test in 2 weeks’ time should confirm that he’ll have recovered. His mother Wivine Ngalula flee from her village 6 months ago when her village was attacked. She left with her 3 sons but lost contact with her husband since. They walked for 14 days in the bush before reaching Tshikapa town to find refuge with an aunt of her. In the bush, they had not much to eat except “taking” some manioc from other people’s field.  Her aunt is selling flour at the local market but has 6 children on her own and they struggle to make ends meet. “I can see my son’s status has really improved since he started eating Plumpy Sup doses. I’m so relieved and thankful to WFP”. Some people have started returning to her village. She’s not planning to return because her husband would be the only one to take the decision. However, he has disappeared.   Photo: WFP/Jacques David

In the Photo: Mbumba 13 years old, and her young sister Mamba, 2 years old; coming from Mayimunene village. They were playing in the garden with friends when the village was attacked. Their mother was cooking the meal. Their mother and father were killed during this attack. Mbumba just had time to grab Mamba and flee with the friends. They walked 3 days and found refuge in a church of Tshikapa. Neighbors and parishioners supply with some food but not enough. This is why Mamba was brought to the nutritional center where she has been treated for MAS by ACF and UNICEF. She hasn’t fully recovered: she’s still MAM but can’t be treated because the number of beneficiaries has already been reached. She’s now on the center’s waiting list to be treated if an extension of this nutritional program is agreed.  Photo: WFP/Jacques David

Bangladesh, Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazar. 11 December 2017  The recent violence in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State has led to mass population displacement both within the country and across the border into Bangladesh. Working with local and international partners, the World Food Programme (WFP) is providing assistance for people arriving in Bangladesh from Myanmar.    Upon arrival, people receive high energy biscuits. Once settled, they receive fortnightly rations of rice, lentils and oil. WFP is especially concerned about the health of women and children arriving hungry and malnourished after days on the move, and is providing nutritional support.   In the Photo: Rekha (30) and her sister Khaleda. Rekha is a mother of one child and arrived in Bangladesh eighteen days ago with her two sisters and her 60 years old mother. Her husband was killed in Myanmar by the army in front of her. She is suffering from a heart problem and was admitted to Cox’s Bazar hospital for ten days. Now she is staying at a transit camp and will move to Kutupalong makeshift.  Photo: WFP/Saikat Mojumder

Algeria, Laayoune refugee camp, Tinduf. 29 November 2017.  Algeria has hosted refugees from Western Sahara since 1975 in what has become one of the world’s most protracted refugee crises. The Sahrawi refugees are located in five camps near the town of Tindouf in Western Algeria. The harsh and isolated desert environment limits opportunities for self-reliance and, as a result, the refugees depend on humanitarian assistance for their survival.  Malnutrition and anaemia rates had been high in the past, but recent assessments have shown an improvement of the overall nutrition situation of women and children. Both chronic malnutrition and global acute malnutrition among children aged 5 or less are at an all-time low. However, anaemia rates, indicating a dietary iron deficiency, are alarmingly high- at 39 percent among children aged 5 or less, and 43 percent among women of reproductive age. The latest assessments also suggests the emergence, amongst the refugee population, of new issues of public health concern, namely overweight and obesity affecting mostly women, as well as diabetes.
