JAMA. 2022;328(22):2198-2200. doi:10.1001/jama.2022.19235

This March, a young mother arrived with 3 children at Dollo Ado in southeastern Ethiopia, where 5 refugee camps currently serve more than 200 000 displaced Somalis.

There, 2 of her children were admitted to a clinic for severe acute malnutrition. Another 2 had died on the more than 10-day walk from their home in Somalia, Iris Bollemeijer, MSc, a nutrition advisor for International Medical Corps, a relief organization based in Los Angeles, told JAMA in an interview.
