Hilfsaktion in Brief
Treated Children in 2010
70 children received surgery
1,997 children were vaccinated
11,809 malnourished children received food.
During the last 16 years,
3,031 children received surgery
30,262 children were vaccinated
49,038 malnourished children received food.
Vaccinating and providing children with food is crucial as this protects them from suffering from Noma.
At the end of 2010, the Hilfsaktion can be pleased with the results. Regional centers throughout the country and the cooperation with the health ministry have made it possible to significantly lower the number of new Noma cases.
