Children – one of whom is riding a bicycle while carrying an infant on her back – play near silos filled with grain, in the village of Weotenga.

The rate of child mortality in Burkina Faso is the third highest in the world – predominantly the result of preventable or treatable conditions, including malnutrition.

The country is one of eight in the Sahel region facing a severe nutrition crisis now affecting over 15 million people. Unless they are reached with appropriate treatment and prevention programs, more than 1 million children under the age of five are at risk of dying from nutrition-related illnesses.
