Photo of the Day: Keeping kids healthy in Niger

Today’s photo is courtesy of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

Ninety percent of the children and 80 percent of the mothers coming to the Integrated Health Center in the village of Kofo are malnourished. The volunteers from the Red Cross Society of Niger are measuring the children and giving nutritional and health advice to the mothers. The volunteers also go from house to house in the surrounding villages looking for malnourished children and mothers.
