VIDEO - Malnutrition in Burundi
Kibuye Hope Hospital is making an impact for nutrition in the hungriest nation on earth (Global Hunger Index 2013). Though 58% of kids under age 5 in Burundi are stunted, irreversibly impeded from reaching their full physical and intellectual potential due to malnutrition in their earliest years, improving their prospects may be as simple as giving them a flour made from a mixture of high protein grains. Dr. Alyssa Pfister (Pediatrics & Internal Medicine) describes the challenges and opportunity of hunger in Burundi.
Dr. Alyssa Pfister will be at WECC this Sunday, July 31st.
