Badghis’ Public Health Department said that the number of malnourished children in the province is up 50% from last year.

According to the department, in the past three months nearly 2,000 malnourished children have been brought to Badghis public hospitals for treatment.

“The figures show a 50% increase since last year,” said Abdul Rauf Saberi, head of malnutrition at Badghis Public Health Department.

“We have come here but it has not worked yet, there is no medicine here,” said Zulaikha, the mother of two malnourished children.

“Here is nothing, no medicine and here is nothing to eat. It would be nice of you if someone would help us,” said Gullalai, the mother of a malnourished child.
