📝 10,000: since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, 10,000 more children are dying due to malnutrition every month.

But ALIMA continues to act! Our teams are renewing their efforts to take care of children such as Bintou, who has been diagnosed with severe acute malnutrition by ALIMA's doctors.

She was very weak and we had to act quickly to save her.

✨ Thanks to specialized care and therapeutic food treatment, in just a few days we were able to save Bintou. After her admission, Bintou has already regained her strength, and her mother Maimouna found her smile again!
