More than half of Sudanese children living in Yusuf Batil refugee camp in Maban County in South Sudan are severely malnourished, according to Doctors without Borders.

The non-governmental organization of medical professionals, which is known by its French acronym MSF, says that between four and five children die every day in the camp.

MSF is helping the children and the refugees at the camp.

Sani Martin of Radio Miraya, which is operated by the UN Mission in South Sudan, recently went to the Yusuf Batil refugee camp to see what is being done to help the children.
