  • Measuring height

    Posted by Brian Jones

    12 April 2004 – Htsurv (38k image)

    I was in Chaghi to do a nutrition survey. The survey was on children under the age of 5 and collected a range of information including weight and height. This is a shot of Sabiha having her height measured. In this shot its easy because she is very cooperative but often the children are incredibly frightened and one of the biggest problems we had was of children running away when the survey teams arrived. In one village a young boy pegged it off as we arrived and we found him quite by accident in the chicken shed, rolled into a tight ball with his eyes shut :-)
