Allassane is Senior Nurse at the malnutrition centre in Azzel village, Niger. Here he is, weighing a child. Unfortunately, through lack of enough food to eat, many children are sick, or much smaller than they should be for their age.

Installing water and sanitation facilities at the centre will enable Allassane to do his job properly. Clean water will help prevent malnourished patients catching waterborne diseases and enable women to give birth safely. The installation of latrines will help to stop diseases from spreading, and give patients dignity.

Get involved in helping Oxfam to do this work and take part in this year’s Herts Hike in Heartwood Forest!
