Across the street from the hospital, at El Fasher's Therapeutic Feeding Centre, this child of 15 months is being treated for severe acute malnutrition. She will stay at the centre with her mother until she attains normal weight. During the seasonal peak, up to 50 children at any one time receive milk formula and ready-to-use therapeutic food treatment for severe acute malnutrition. Most are under two years of age.
