The battle to save Central African Republic’s starving children

In the overcrowded hospital grounds, a father called Theodore hugs his young daughter who is suffering from malnutrition.

His wife is in hospital after having a nervous breakdown, he says, after the couple’s first child died. He struggles to earn enough money to buy food.
