Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso is part of the ten poorest countries in the world. The nutritional level of Burkina-Faso's children reveals a fragile situation today : 13% emaciated, 29% don't reach full growth and 30% (depending upon there age) find themselves more than under weight. This large scale of malnutrition is far superior to the acceptable level established by the WHO (World Health Organization).
