Ivo, TV reporter

My World

Ivo is a reporter on a children’s TV station in Mozambique, Africa. First News follows him as he makes a programme about nutrition and tells us about his world.

Malnutrition is responsible for nearly half of all deaths of children under five. Millions more children live with the effects for the rest of their lives, because their bodies and brains haven’t developed the way they should.

Around the world, five malnourished children die every minute as a result of malnutrition.

That's really sad - Ivo's kitchen AND the fact that a malnourished child will NEVER EVER reach their full physical potential and cognitive capacity. Terrible.

I hope lots of people will help them.
Just think about how they are living.
