When UNICEF Kid Power Team Members get active to save lives, they help malnourished children like Kumba. A year before this photo was taken, she couldn't walk, stand or even eat. But after getting treated for malnutrition at a rehab center in her family's Mauritania village, she slowly came back to life:
"She began to walk, talk and giggle," says her mom, who can now plan for her daughter's future. "I really want her to go to school because I did not have this chance."
Saving the lives of children suffering from malnutrition is a complex challenge UNICEF has mastered by providing RUTF to children along with safe water and improved sanitation and hygiene services to the communities where they are suffering.
