Description : The number of patients visiting the centre has tripled since it became fully operational. This is attributed to the holistic approach the program takes to support both the child and mother or care giver.
According to international organizations, nearly 200,000 children in Somalia are malnourished, of whom close to 38,000 are acutely malnourished and in critical need of therapeutic feeding and medical treatment. The two centres mentioned, though insufficient on their own, provide a critical venue for this vital care in the South and Central region of Somalia.
