A mother and her child prepare to move from the Phase One building to the Phase Two building for malnurished children who have been stabilized. At the Phase Two building, children will have all their vaccinations updated and mothers will receive prevention training and information about nutrition and sanitary practices. Located in the Western Sahel, the landlocked country suffers from chronic malnutrition and food insecurity caused by climate related drought and erratic rainy seasons, inadequate arable land, one of the highest demographic growth rates in the world, poor social and sanitary living conditions and widespread poverty. Food insecurity affects children under five and women disproportionately, especially in rural areas. Aguie, Niger. 15/07/2017.
