A WAR WITHOUT WEAPONS
Malnutrition is a silent war that takes more victims than armed wars. There are more than one million and 400 thousand children at risk of death. A total of 20 million people, mainly concentrated in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan and Nigeria, are facing a very serious humanitarian emergency.
The population is worn down by armed conflict and drought, and malnutrition has become the real health emergency, mainly affecting the most vulnerable people, such as pregnant women and children.
Families no longer cultivate their land, have abandoned or sold their livestock, and are looking for somewhere safe. The INTERSOS humanitarian aid workers are in the field to save malnourished men, women and children who risk dying every day, distributing food, basic goods, and ensuring access to clean water and secure shelter.
INTERSOS IS ON THE FRONT LINE TO SAVE HUMAN LIVES.WE CANNOT ABANDON THEM, THEY NEED HELP, OURS AND YOURS!
We must not repeat the mistakes of 2011, when 260,000 people died in Somalia, including 133,000 children, because the world could not respond promptly to the famine that struck the Horn of Africa.Giacomo Franceschini
