Saving the future generation in Darfur

There are only two paediatric wards in El Fasher's Teaching Hospital, though there is a need for six. These mothers make the best of the crowded conditions to breastfeed and care for their children. Since 2004, WHO has been supporting this hospital, supplying it with drugs and other medical supplies to offer patients for free, and providing training and funding.
