Thousands of kids are now at high risk because of Covid 19. Not only because of this pandemic situation, but a majority of malagasy community are really struggling to make their living right now. A majority of kids in our community are experiencing hunger, increasing the risk of morbidity and mortality. Because governement is poor and even worse are not supporting this community, kids are threatened of malnutrition but they might also be a vector of spreading this virus.
