A kid is dying from malnourishment every six minutes in drought hit Somalia, stunned aid workers revealed. UNICEF plans a huge relief mission to the two regions of Somalia where a state of famine was declared this week.
According to UNICEF UK executive director David Bull We have stepped up our response even more as the death rate has climbed dramatically.
UNICEF estimates it needs £62.8million over the next six months in order to reach malnourished children. It means that around 250 underfed youngsters under five die each day, according to United Nations aid agency UNICEF.
