MSF - Providing its Services to Children In Qayyarah

In Qayyarah, a town some 60 kilometres south of Mosul, MSF is running an inpatient therapeutic feeding centre for babies suffering from malnutrition. The majority of patients are aged under 6 months of age and have recently fled IS controlled areas of West Mosul and Shirqat with their families. In the ITFC babies are fed with specially formulated therapeutic milk to help them return to a normal weight and also receive treating for treatment for co-infections (like diarrhea and respiratory tract infections) caused by poor living conditions both inside besieged IS areas and in the camps.
