Children don't have access to medical care because they've been displaced or there are droughts or scarce resources. The plain fact is, if MSF wasn't there, they would die. - Jenna Broome | MSF emergency doctor

Malnutrition is about more than hunger. Its about healthcare.

Children with severe malnutrition struggle to fight off deadly diseases such as malaria, pneumonia or measles. Even giving food itself can bring on dangerous medical complications. That's why MSF teams are delivering expert care to save young lives.

Visit our website to find ideas and support to make raising money for MSF as easy as possible.

What is MSF doing to save lives?

In countries such as Ethiopia, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan we are operating specialised inpatient feeding centres to help children back to health in a safe and monitored way.

In our hospitals, we are providing critical care to paediatric patients with severe medical complications.

And, our teams are running vital vaccination campaigns and healthcare education services to help young families protect themselves.

How can your support help?

- £19 can provide a month of lifesaving therapeutic food to treat a severely malnourished child

- £41 could pay for a blood pressure monitor to help detect underlying health issues

- £82 could pay for two blood pressure monitors to help detect underlying health issues

- £194 could pay for a sustenance kit to help mothers provide babies with essential nutrition

- £447 can provide a month of lifesaving therapeutic food to treat 24 severely malnourished children
