A Malnourished Toddler’s Recovery in Central African Republic

For more than 70 years, UNICEF has been putting children first, protecting their rights and providing the assistance and services they need to survive and thrive. 


The day Prosper rushed his son Pierre to the health center, the frighteningly emaciated 3-year-old barely clung to life. During the 7-mile walk from their village to the nearest health center outside Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic (CAR), the desperate father prayed: “I didn’t know if I was going to get to the hospital with Pierre alive. Even if I made it, I didn’t know if he would make it. I wondered if God’s plan was to take him back.”

USVI recovery anniversary report outlines progress since devastating 2017 hurricanes

ST CROIX, USVI — Governor Kenneth Mapp has announced that a first-year progress report has been published online about the status of the US Virgin Islands’ recovery from Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

“This is a road map in terms of where we were, where we are and where we are going with the recovery,” the governor said. “I was able to present a draft to top officials on my recent visit to Washington so that they could have a more complete understanding of our needs and progress. Our report was very well received.”

The USVI government has secured $8.5 billion in federal assistance for the territory’s recovery.
