Shocking! 75,000 children will die in Nigeria! Beware of 2017...

Acording to U.N. Children’s Fund, Nigeria will
lose 75,000 children next year
Nutrition chief for UNICEF in Nigeria explains the
horrible estimates
The organisation states that $115 million is needed to
save children
U.N. Children’s Fund warns that about 75,000 children will
die next year in Nigeria.

The horrible prediction is based on famine-like conditions
created by Boko Haram if donors don’t respond quickly.
The Fund stresses that’s far more than the 20,000 people
killed in the seven-year Islamic uprising.
Arjan de Wagt, nutrition chief for UNICEF in Nigeria, notes
that the severity of malnutrition levels and high number of
children facing death make the humanitarian crisis
confronting northeastern Nigeria perhaps the worst in the world.

De Wagt explains that most severely malnourished
children die of secondary illnesses like diarrhea and
respiratory infections.
The expert says: “But with famine, you actually die of
hunger. Globally, you just don’t see this. You have to go
back to places like Somalia five years ago to see these
kinds of levels. Nearly 260,000 people died in Somalia
between 2010 and 2012 from severe drought aggravated by war.”

On Thursday UNICEF doubled the amount of its appeal for
Nigeria, saying $115 million is needed to save children.
However, only $24 million has been raised so far.
Speaking about the whole society De Wagt stressed: “Of 4
million people in desperate need of food are about 2.2
million people trapped in areas where Boko Haram is
operating or in newly liberated areas that still are too
dangerous to reach by road. Among them, 65,000 are living
in famine-like conditions.”

In their turn aid group Doctors Without Borders states:
“The crisis has reached catastrophic levels for people who
have sought refuge in towns controlled by the military but
who are entirely reliant on outside aid that does not reach

However, de Wagt admits that the agency continues to
deliver some therapeutic food by helicopter and to train
local health workers to treat malnourished children living
in dangerous areas.
Doctors Without Borders state that the highest levels of
starving children are in camps in Maiduguri, the
northeastern city free of conflict where aid workers have
been active for two years: “The mortality rate is five times
higher than what is considered an emergency, with the
main cause being hunger”.
