Malnourished indian children wait to be seen by doctors at a clinic in central Brazil.
Malnourished indian children wait to be seen for medical treatments at a clinic near the town of Dourados, in the central Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul, March 9, 2005. At least nine children have died at Indian villages around Dourados, often due to malnourishment, despite emergency food distribution and medical attention. The most recent death was on Thursday. An emergency relief operation has so far failed to stop Indian children dying each week from poverty-related illnesses at a reservation in central Brazil and long-term aid is needed, health officials and Indian leaders said.
