This boy is being treated with oral rehydration salts and zinc after a serious bout of diarrhoea. Before he returns home, his parents will receive counselling on how to prevent a future episode. Diarrhoeal diseases are a leading cause of child deaths in North Darfur, as is the case around the world.
