The mortality rate in children under five has crossed the emergency threshold. According to a nutrition survey carried out at the end of April, one child in five is suffering from malnutrition in villages in the north of Maradi and Tahoua provinces. Teams have opened new feeding centres and MSF is worried about the lack of assistance provided to children suffering from moderate malnutrition.
