Summary: 

For a country that struggles to feed its population even in years of good harvest, aid agencies are increasingly concerned. The United Nations' World Food Programme (WFP) says under-fives are particularly at risk. "WFP is looking particularly after mothers and their young babies because they are in a moment of their life when they really need a special nutrition booster and we see this as our humanitarian task to help them at this very special moment in their life," said WFP Country Director Claudia Von Roehl.
