UNICEF beslenme yetersizliğinden etkilenen çocukları
tedavi edebilmek için ortaklarıyla birlikte acil yardım çalışması yürütüyor.

Yaklaşık 1.4 milyon çocuk ölüm riski altında.

UNICEF dünyada en acil besin ihtiyacının %80’ini sağlıyor. Ama daha fazlasını yapmak şart. Çatışan taraflar UNICEFin çocuklara hayat kurtarıcı yardım ulaştırmasını zorlaştırıyor. UNICEF’in ortaklarıyla birlikte yürüttüğü çalışmalarla bu yıl beslenme yetersizliğinden etkilenen Nijerya’da 220 bin, Güney Sudan’da 200 bin, Somali’de 200 bin ve Yemen’de 320 bin çocuğa ulaşılması hedefleniyor.

Twenty-one month old Ali Abbas holds onto his mother's nine month pregnant belly, at Dalaram health and malnutrition clinic run by the government and supported by UNICEF in Old Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria, Thursday 2 March 2017. Ali was at the clinic suffering from pneumonia. He and his family are internally displaced by fighting from Damboa. The prolonged humanitarian crisis in the wake of the Boko Haram insurgency has had a devastating impact on food security and nutrition in northeast Nigeria, leading to famine-like conditions in some areas, according to a World Food Programme (WFP) situation report from late February 2017. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) projects that by June 2017 some 5.1 million people in Nigeria will be food insecure at crisis and emergency levels. As of 15 March 2017, over the past 12 months, UNICEF and partners have provided safe water to nearly 666,000 people and treated nearly 170,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition in the three conflict-affected northeast Nigerian states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa. As part of cholera preparedness, UNICEF and other WASH Sector partners are building the capacity of government and NGOs on cholera response and developing contingency plans with other stakeholders before the rainy season starting mid-April. Prepositioning of supplies for cholera response and mapping cholera hotspots are part of the preventive measures that are being planned.

A young child who is suffering from malnutrition is nursed by it's mother in the Nutrition stablisation unit that is being supported by UNICEF in Burao, Somalia Thursday, March 9, 2017. Lack of rain and other environmental factors mean that a severe drought is affecting millions of people across Somalia. UNICEF is supporting those most in need with water and nutritional programmes.  UNICEF and its partners treat children suffering from life threatening severe acute malnutrition (SAM) through  Stabilization Centres – wards in hospitals for severely acutely malnourished children with additional complications such as illnesses where they receive medical treatment, fortified milk and ready to use therapeutic food (RUTF) – generally therapeutic peanut paste. UNICEF supports seven Stabilization Centres in Somaliland. SAM cases without complications are given outpatient treatment in an Outpatient Therapeutic Programme (OTP) where they receive a supply of RUTF. UNICEF is supporting 95 centres in all regions. UNICEF also has 38 mobile nutrition teams which travel round hundreds of sites to assess and treat children and health teams with a nutrition screener. In March 2017 UNICEF will support an  additional 9 mobile teams, five Stabilization Centres and 15 fixed OTP sites in the worst affected regions. Last year UNICEF treated 14,000 children suffering from severe acute malnutrition (1,166 a month). Generally UNICEF treats 75% of SAM cases with other organizations arranging treatment for rest who can be reached.   So far this year there has been a rise in severely acutely malnourished children to around 1,500 a month so far or 18,000. – but a much steeper rise in moderately malnourished children (treated by WFP) who risk becoming severely malnourished. In early 2017 in Somalia, the humanitarian situation in the country continues to deteriorate, with an estimated 6.2 million people (about half of the population) either severely food insecure or in need of livelihood

Somali,  9 Mart 2017

On 17 February 2017 in Juba,  Elizabeth Kegi, a 1.5-year-old child with severe malnutrition, rests on her mother's lap at the malnutrition ward in Al Shabbab hospital in Juba, South Sudan. In 2017 in South Sudan, ongoing insecurity, combined with an economic crisis that has pushed inflation above 800 percent, has created widespread food insecurity with malnutrition among children having reached emergency levels in most parts of the country. In 2016, UNICEF and partners admitted 184,000 children for treatment of severe malnutrition. That is 50 percent higher than the number treated in 2015 and an increase of 135 percent over 2014. In February 2017, war and a collapsing economy have left some 100,000 people facing starvation in parts of South Sudan where famine was declared 20 February, three UN agencies warned. A further 1 million people are classified as being on the brink of famine. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP) also warned that urgent action is needed to prevent more people from dying of hunger. If sustained and adequate assistance is delivered urgently, the hunger situation can be improved in the coming months and further suffering mitigated.  The total number of food insecure people is expected to rise to 5.5 million at the height of the lean season in July if nothing is done to curb the severity and spread of the food crisis. According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) update released 20 February by the government, the three agencies and other humanitarian partners, 4.9 million people – more than 40 percent of South Sudan’s population – are in need of urgent food, agriculture and nutrition assistance. Unimpeded humanitarian access to everyone facing famine, or at risk of famine, is urgently needed to reverse the escalating catastrophe, the UN agencies urged. Further spread of famine can only be prevented if h

İleri seviyede beslenme yetersizliği teşhisi konan 1,5 yaşındaki Elizabeth Kegi, Juba’daki Al Shabbab hastanesinde annesinin kucağında.

Çatışma, yoksulluk ve güvenlik sorunları nedeniyle büyük çalkantılar yaşayan Güney Sudan’da ise ciddi beslenme yetersizliğinden etkilenen 270 bini aşkın çocuk bulunuyor. Ülkenin kuzeyinde 20 bin çocuğun yaşadığı Birlik Eyaleti’nin kimi bölgelerinde kıtlık ilan edildi. Yaşanan gıda krizini hafifletecek ve yayılmasını önleyecek girişimlerde bulunulmaması halinde ülkede gıda sorunundan etkilenen kişi sayısının 4,9 milyondan Temmuz ayında kurak dönemde 5,5 milyona ulaşması bekleniyor.

On 1 February, a health worker weighs a baby as the child’s mother watches, at a UNICEF-supported outpatient therapeutic feeding clinic on the outskirts of the south-western town of Baidoa, in Bay Region. The clinic, run by Deeg-Roor Medical Organization (DMO), a UNICEF-supported NGO, provides life-saving nutrition treatment and care, as well as basic health services. In February 2017 in Somalia, the humanitarian situation in the country continues to deteriorate, with an estimated 6.2 million people (about half of the population) either severely food insecure or in need of livelihood support. Severe drought is now affecting all regions, following the failure of two or more consecutive rains, and with the last ‘Deyr’ season (October-December) performing poorly and large areas receiving less than 40 per cent normal rainfall. The ongoing drought and other shocks have left communities with little or no remaining resources. Entire villages have lost their crops or seen their livestock die. The prices for water and locally produced food have risen dramatically, and thousands of people are on the move in search of food and water. The drought is also exacerbating the existing nutrition crisis in the country, where more than 363,000 children under the age of 5 are acutely malnourished, including 71,000 suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and in urgent need of life-saving treatment. UNICEF estimates that by April 2017, 750,000 people will need health assistance and 4.5 million will need water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) support. Also, should the next rains prove inadequate and humanitarian assistance not reach drought-affected populations, there is a risk of famine in the second half of 2017. The drought has also led to an increase in waterborne diseases, with more than 4,000 cases of acute watery diarrhoea/cholera this year. UNICEF and the World Food Programme are working together to scale up their responses in accessible areas, where millions of lives

Somali, 1 Şubat 2017

Somali’de on yıllarca süren çatışmalar nedeniyle bir hayli zor koşullar altında yaşayan ve kırılgan hale gelen halk kuraklık tehdidi ile karşı karşıya.

UNICEF representative in Yemen Meritxell Relano  checks on a boy suffering from malnutrition at Al-Sabeen Hospital, Sana’a, Yemen, Thursday 19 January 2017. As of November 2016, almost two years of conflict in Yemen have left 18.8 million people - some 70 per cent of the population - in need of humanitarian assistance. After the United Nations-backed peace talks were suspended in August 2016, airstrikes and hostilities intensified and civilians are paying the price. Close to 4,000 civilians have died as a direct result of the conflict, including 1,332 children. At least 14.5 million people lack access to safe water and sanitation and 14.8 million have limited or no access to health services, compounding a cholera crisis that has put 7.6 million people at risk. The nutrition situation has deteriorated, with 3.3 million children and pregnant or lactating women suffering from acute malnutrition and more than 460,000 children under 5 suffering from severe acute malnutrition (SAM). The near collapse of national services has left an estimated 2 million children out of school. Almost 2.2 million internally displaced persons, nearly half of them children, as well as 1 million returnees and many host communities are also in need of assistance. Ongoing conflict and the deteriorating economic situation have put essential public services such as health on the verge of collapse, leaving children and women at even higher risk.
