Chad When Tradition Kills
ADVANCE FOR SATURDAY DEC 22, 2012 In this Nov. 5, 2012 photo, mothers try to engage their malnourished children in playtime as part of the treatment program at a nutritional health clinic run by Action Against Hunger with the support of UNICEF, in Moussoro, Chad. In this Sahel nation, childhood malnutrition and related mortality persist at alarming rates, despite the fact that many affected families live within a day's journey of internationally-funded nutrition clinics. One reason is that families, bound by local custom, choose instead to seek traditional treatments, treatments which can lead to the very infections that kill their undernourished children.(AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
