Refugee children facing catastrophic nutrition situation in AfricaListen /
Refugee children in Africa are facing what has been described as a "catastrophic nutrition situation" following a cut in food rations.
The UN has warned that funding difficulties, compounded by security and logistical problems in some countries, have forced cuts in food rations for nearly 800,000 refugees in nine African countries.
It could worsen already unacceptable levels of acute malnutrition, stunting and anaemia, particularly in children.
