Darfur

The people of Darfur, Sudan, have been victims of a genocide there since 2003. The government-recruited Janjaweed militia has been systemically raping and killing non-Arab civilians in that region, and looting and destroying homes. 1 in 5 children under age 5 suffer from severe malnutrition, and more are malnourished. This is a problem similar to that in Niger, because children at that age run the risk for developmental disorders, from which they'll never recover. It's possible for children over the age of 5 to recover fully from malnutrition.
