In #Xiengkhouang #Laos, many children suffer from #malnutrition. This boy is one of them. SOS Children's Villages help the most vulnerable of these children regain their health at the malnutrition program in Xiengkhouang.
Did you know? Micronutrient deficiencies, especially the lack of two minerals (iodine and iron) and one vitamin (vitamin A) are another major manifestation of malnutrition. Iodine deficiency can lead to severe mental or physical impairment. Anaemic (Iron deficiency) children grow more slowly and are apathetic, anorexic and without energy. Vitamin A deficiency weakens immunity against infections. // #hunger #food #ONELIFE #seehelptell
