The major problem that caused malnourishment among the citizens in Angola especially to young kids is the post-civil war that they have experienced that resulted to malnourishment of kids, and made them susceptible to various diseases. In fact, the leading cause of mortality in Angola is not because of the after effect of the war, but because of the lack of provision that led to the primary disease that stroke the kids which is the acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Moreover, the growing need of the country has blown out of proportion and it has reached more than $12.7 million in order to sustain the food that people need. In fact, the case of malnutrition in this country is categorically identified as severe, which is the reason why there is collaboration among the health workers of WHO and UNICEF to fight this problem through treatments, and food support.
