IRC drought response: caring for malnourished children
Dr. Milhia Kader works at an International Rescue Committee hospital in Dadaab, Kenya, treating refugees who have fled drought and famine in neighboring Somalia. Dr. Kader says that 17% of children arriving in local refugee camps are malnourished. Her unit provides lifesaving care for kids who have severe malnutrition with medical complications. She introduces us to 3-year-old Aden, one of her many young patients who have improved considerably with treatment from the IRC.
