This downloadable desktop (by Francesco Zizola) shows a mother and child at a malnutrition feeding centre in Ethiopia.

MSF responded immediately to the acute nutritional crisis in Southern Ethiopia in 2008 and opened 50 centres all over the country. Patients came once a week to these centres to receive consultation, specialised food for malnutrition and a food ration for their family to help prevent further malnutrition. If cases of malnutrition became serious, then patients were treated in hospitals with MSF doctors available 24 hours a day. In 2008 MSF helped to treat over 60,000 children suffering from malnutrition in Southern Ethiopia.
