In drought-affected Mareko Woreda (district) in SNNP Region, Ethiopia, Safiya prepares a porridge for her two-year-old son Habib, consisting of Corn Soya Blend and oil provided under the WFP-supported Targeted Supplementary Food (TSF) programme. Habib was diagnosed with moderate acute malnutrition two weeks earlier and linked to the TSF programme which provides supplementary food rations for moderately malnourished children and pregnant and lactating women to support their nutritional recovery. He is still on TSF, is recovering well from the acute malnutrition and continues with follow-up treatment. UNICEF is working together with partners including WFP in the drought response, and provides health and nutrition support including ready-to-use therapeutic food (RUTF), therapeutic milks, routine medications and support for community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM). 25 February 2016 © UNICEF Ethiopia/2016/Ayene
