UNICEF Document Cites ‘Stunning Figures’ On Malnutrition In Sudan

New York Times: Malnutrition Crisis in Sudan
Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist

“Here’s an internal UNICEF document citing stunning figures for malnutrition in Sudan, particularly in Darfur. … [T]his document suggests that the suffering continues at horrifying levels. … According to UNICEF’s Representative in Sudan, Geert Cappelaere, children are still suffering as much as five to 10 years ago, but international attention has waned. … I’m posting the document to try to shine a spotlight on this hidden tragedy, in hopes that the attention will help lead to efforts to address it” (9/5).
