270 children were selected for the first phase of the malnourished children in the Beach camp for the screening and treating process for an initial phase of three months. These children will be provided with the appropriate supplements. The selected children were based on a criteria determined by the medical team and the consultant through an inclusion and exclusion terms as follows:
- Children who are anemic.
- Underweight, wasted and/or stunted children.
- Families with no or very limited income.
This criteria is based on international standards (IMCI protocols of World Health Organization)
Moreover, during the mid of October 2016, the local facilitators have shared the information about the project among the families and the whole community and notified them with the exact date of screening the children. 80 children were screened and 30 fit in the criteria.
