The rate of malnutrition in Aweil State is alarming, the UN children’s
agency, UNICEF, has said.

It says many children and mothers are currently being treated for
malnourishment in some of its clinics across Aweil State.

UNICEF’s spokesperson Tim Erwin visited some of the agency’s health
facilities there early this week.

“I visited some of the clinics where we are treating children and mothers
and you see many children who are exhausted, but they are given food with
high energy and calories,” Mr Erwin told Eye Radio.

Between January and June this year, it “treated 34,000 children for
malnutrition” in the area.

“And we have a target of up to around 62,000. It is really quite alarming
rate of malnutrition in Aweil. The need is tremendous,” he added.

Mr Erwin says clinics where malnourished children are being treated, open
twice a week.
