Video: Aden’s story revisited
September 15, 2011 by The IRC
UNICEF Television reports on the progress of 3-year-old Aden, whose family trekked for 25 days from their drought-ravaged home in Somalia to find help in a refugee camp in Kenya. Fifteen days into their journey, Aden's mother died.
In spite of his mother's sacrifice, little Aden arrived at the camp severly malnourished. He was rushed to the International Rescue Committee's nutrition stabilization center, where he was admitted with only a 50 percent chance of survival.
