An estimated 130,000 children are at risk of developing acute malnutrition in the African nation of Chad this year, according to UNICEF, the UN Children's Fund.

The humanitarian disaster stretches across borders into Mali, Niger, Mauritania and Burkina Faso, areas that have still not recovered from a drought two years ago.
