In the Central African Republic (CAR), two in three children — around 1.5 million — need humanitarian assistance. That's why Paolo Marchi, UNICEF CAR's Deputy Representative, and his colleagues are working around the clock to provide lifesaving aid. This week, he joins our own Erica Vogel to talk about how the recent NBC News coverage of the crisis came together, the miraculous intervention UNICEF uses to treat malnutrition, and how former child soldiers are rebuilding their lives.
