Almost half of Malawian Children are currently reported malnourished due to the severe drought and food crisis the country is going through.

According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), there are strong fears on the detereoritating health of Malawian Children as most of them are dying due to malnutrition resulted from lack of food in many households across the country.

Commenting on the matter, the Country Director of UNICEF, Mahimbo Ndowe said the situation is worrisome because almost half of the children in the country are malnourished.

And according to the latest vulnerability assessment committee figures more than 2.8 million people will face hunger in the coming lean season following severe drought that ruined this year’s harvest.

Recently, President Peter Mutharika called on international humanitarian community to help in the food crisis facing the country.
