5.6 million children under the age of 5 die every year in which 2.52 million are linked to malnutrition. Acute malnutrition causes serious holdups in children’s growth and damages to their defense system, opening the door for deadly illnesses like malaria, pneumonia and measles. That’s why around 45% of deaths among children under 5 years of age are linked to malnutrition.
“We as a doctor can do are to persevere until the end to save more lives.” Dr. Akin Chan from Hong Kong said. We find it unacceptable that so many children are still dying every year from malnutrition. Our doctors, nurses and other professionals are always ready to react rapidly to assist people in need, whoever they are and wherever they are.
Ten dollars per week might not be much for you but it is vital for malnourished children – it can save a child’s life.
