The Holl-Holl Refugee camp in Djibouti is home to more than 4,000 refugees – mostly women and children – including this mum, who has brought her daughter to a UNICEF-supported nutrition centre at the camp. During the growth monitoring session, a health worker has given her some Plumpy'Nut®, a ready-to-use therapeutic food sachet, to treat her daughter’s Severe Acute Malnutrition.

UNICEF is providing support for the treatment of severe acute malnutrition in children and ensuring that preventative services are available at the camp.

For children who are severely malnourished, this Inspired Gift is life-saving.
