”My other child was sick, but it was impossible to get treatment. He died on the road. I will keep on fighting so that I can continue to feed my [only living] child.” Mbombo trekked with her family for five days to safety after a militia attacked her village in Kasai, DR Congo. She’s lovingly holding Patience, her two-year-old son, who is receiving urgent treatment for malnutrition at a UNICEF-supported health centre. @unicefrdcongo is helping thousands of children like Patience recover from malnutrition in Kasai. Children cannot wait for peace. They need it now. #ChildrenUnderAttack © UNICEF/UN0271294/Tremeau
