These photos, taken in June 2011, show the Provide Clinic in the settlement of Korogochi, in Kenya. The clinic is a UNICEF-supported health centre providing care and treatment for local women and children.
Living in Korogocho is tough. Over 200,000 people live within one square kilometre, squeezed in together with poor water and sanitation facilities.
Households in Korogocho spend most of their incomes on staple foods. Because of rising food prices, families cope by reducing the size and frequency of their meals. As a result, severe malnutrition is a problem.
