Abla, a displaced woman who recently fled her home in the area of Hawija, has brought her son to MSF clinic for a check-up: "before MSF opened the clinic here I worried about the children she says. I knew something was wrong, they were losing weight, they were not growing properly. It all started back at the home village. We had already started reducing our food from two meals to just one. I didn’t seem to have enough milk for my son. It is such a relief to see him getting stronger with each passing day”.
