Bostjan Nachbar spent this summer in the region of Sahel, in Chad, as a member of a Unicef mission to show the world what life is like for the children under 5 in that country that are suffering from chronic malnutrition. The Voices of Children project tells the story of little Batrene, who weighed 5.6 kg when he was 8 months old and in three weeks, after visiting the Mao Mosque Medical Centre, weighed 6.2 kg. “His health is clearly improving and he is heading towards complete recovery”, says Nachbar in the video.

The Barça player is highly committed to charity, and was awestruck by the medical centre. “It’s good to know that there are medical centres like this one at Mao and in the region, where they are helping underfed children and also saving lives” he says. In this video summary of his visit, Nachbar describes his feelings and experiences.
