FRESH FIGHTING DISPLACES 5,000 IN BATANGAFO
Clashes between armed groups on 7 -9 November near the northern Batangafotown forced around 5,000 people to flee towards the town. The latest violence raised to 36,000 the number of displaced people in the area. Food and basic household items are the urgent needs of the newly displaced. The country has witnessed a surge in violence over the past year, with fresh hotspots and recurrent clashes erupting in several regions.
The TRC has always seen the importance in providing humanitarian relief for African countries, with its host national societies lacking the capacity to procure the needs of its vulnerable population amid man-made and natural disasters like; droughts and civil war leading to hunger & malnutrition.
As these countries look for ways for sustainable development, the TRC acknowledges that lack of nutrition is the root cause for holding countries back, as persons essentially need energy to function or achieve in terms of education and livelihoods.

See a lot of people squatting in the open today? Don't be offended. The so-called "big squat" was held worldwide to coincide with the 10th annual World Toilet Day, an initiative to bring awareness to the need for adequate sanitary facilities.
Every day, some 1.1 billion people go to the bathroom without any type of toilet, according to the World Health Organization.
From the Editor
One of the longest raging debates in nutrition continues in the letters section of this issue of Field Exchange. Put simply, does the nutrition community invest too much in magic bullets and not enough in home grown and more sustainable solutions? In the 1970s/80s, micronutrients supplementation became the 'magic bullet' to address malnutrition. Massive investments in Vitamin A, iron and iodine programmes were made while, according to critics, problems of chronic malnutrition and stunting were largely ignored.
